Auck­land Coun­cil’s an­nual bud­get con­sul­ta­tion re­ceived 8058 writ­ten sub­mis­sions - an in­crease of more than 140 per cent on the pre­vi­ous year and triple the num­ber of sub­mis­sions com­pared to the 2015 fi­nan­cial year. In ad­di­tion to writ­ten sub­mis­sions, 103 com­ments were re­ceived via so­cial me­dia while nearly 1500 Auck­lan­ders at­tended the feed­back events across Auck­land. More feed­back was re­ceived from Auck­land’s di­verse com­mu­ni­ties, in­clud­ing Maori, Pasi­fika and Asian Auck­lan­ders than ever be­fore. This rep­re­sents 44 per cent of to­tal feed­back - up from 18 per cent last year. A fi­nal de­ci­sion for the new bud­get will be made on June 1.
