A report from Auckland Transport, outlining where Auckland Council’s share of the proceeds from the Araparera forestry joint venture will be spent, has been delayed yet again. The report was scheduled to go to the Rodney Local Board last month. However, it was delayed pending further discussion, which was due to happen last week. An AT spokesperson says the report may be considered at the Board’s meeting this month, but this will depend on the outcome of discussions. The joint venture between Council and Ngati Whatua O Kaipara wound-up three years ago, but as yet not one cent of Council’s $2.5 million share has been spent on the promised road improvements.
