Auckland Unleashed – Mayoral Summit 2011
Media are invited to attend Auckland Unleashed, the Mayoral Summit to kick start the Auckland Plan process.
The Auckland Plan – also referred to as the spatial plan – will guide the future development and growth of the unified
Auckland over the next 20-30 years.
The Auckland Plan presents an unprecedented opportunity to enable integrated, coordinated and cost effective decision
making by the Auckland Council, central government, other agencies and the private sector.
The summit at the Aotea Centre will bring together civic, political, community and business leaders to start the
discussion about Auckland’s future.
There will be many opportunities for Aucklanders to be involved in the development of the Auckland Plan, and the summit
marks the start of this process.
The discussion document to be released at the summit represents the first stage of the development of the Auckland Plan.
Media are welcome to attend the summit. To ensure we are able to supply sufficient media desks, audio feeds and camera
spots, please let us know if your organisation will be attending.
Media attending the summit will receive a comprehensive media pack. A copy of the day’s programme will be available
early next week.
Glyn Jones, Melanya Burrows and John Evans will be available to assist media on the day.
