Beatson Interview – Selwyn Manning IVs Nikki Kaye on Her Vision For Auckland & Whether The Ports Should Be Moved
The National Party’s MP for Auckland Central, Nikki Kaye, talks to Selwyn Manning about her vision for Auckland and in particular her view that there is a strong argument to have the Ports of Auckland moved to either Marsden Point and/or Tauranga.
Script: This week — we kick-off the first of a series of programmes we’ll be mounting through the year on the super-planning that’s needed to develop New Zealand’s first super-city Auckland Council’s governing body has approved the Big Picture Plan for a “quality, compact city” that will house up to 1 million more people over the next 30 years.
And It’s going to be a stretch — for both the Council’s residents and ratepayers — and central government, its agencies, and taxpayers.
Tonight, two Auckland MP’s with a special interest in the success of the effort are our guests on the Interview:
Auckland Central’s NationalMP Nikki Kaye — and the Labour opposition Auckland issues spokesperson Phil Twyford (click here to view).
First up — here’s Selwyn Manning with Nikki Kaye.
The Beatson Interview broadcasts on Monday evenings on Triangle TV and webcasts on LiveNews.co.nz.
