The Roadshow is part of the consultation on Auckland Council’s Draft Auckland Plan which currently underway.  The Plan will have a major impact on Aucklanders lives over the next 30 years.  The Auckland Plan and its related plans will shape where we live, work, study and play.  They will also transform how we use transport over the next 30 years.
