    Submission to Queenstown Lakes District Council - 23 Feb 2018

  • Proposed targeted rate on commercial accommodation providers as part of the Auckland Council Annual Budget 2017/2018 consultation

    Submission to Auckland Council - 27 March 2017

    We vigorously oppose this proposed rate. Our ability to prepare a comprehensive submission responding to the proposal relied on the provision by Auckland Council of information relevant to the connection between the proposed targeted rate and the benefits that would accrue. TIA does not believe that all relevant correspondence and data it has requested of the Council has been provided, and if that information is provided at a later date, we reserve the right to comment further. If Auckland Council does not have any further information, then we are concerned at the lack of an adequate evidential basis for the proposed targeted rate on Auckland accommodation providers.

  • Wellington International Airport’s proposed runway extension

    Letter to the Greater Wellington Regional Council (application no WGN160274 & SR357837)

    Significant investment in infrastructure is needed to support New Zealand’s strong tourism growth but major developments like the Wellington airport runway extension must be supported by clear evidence of tangible benefits for the visitor economy.

    We want to see more evidence that an extended runway would bring more travellers to regions outside the traditional ‘Golden Route’ of Auckland-Rotorua-Queenstown and we are also concerned that the proposed funding structure relies too heavily on local and central government funding.

  • Wellington Convention Centre and Movie Museum proposal

    Letter of Support to Wellington City Council - 15 March 2016

    TIA recommends the Wellington Convention Centre go ahead as proposed. It will provide lasting economic benefits to the country by improving New Zealand’s capability to host medium to large-scale international conferences and exhibitions. The Movie Museum adds a significant and positive new dimension to the original proposal.

    This was a great win for TIA and the Wellington region, with the Wellington City Council approving the recommended design for the Movie Museum and Convention Centre project on 17 August 2016.
