Advocating for business

We’re part of a wide range of conversations with local and national government, other membership associations and the private sector, advocating and lobbying for business interests in the future shaping of the city. You can see the submissions we've made recently here.

We represent business on the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board, which gives advice to the Auckland Council family on projects including those delivered under the City Centre Masterplan and the allocation of the City Centre Targeted Rate.

We regularly ask for our members’ views on topics to inform our position, through surveys, open calls for feedback through our e-newsletters and one on one conversations.

Important advocacy topics for the city centre include:

  • City transformation and development response
  • Funding
  • Transport and access
  • Policy
  • Arts & culture
  • A unique city centre experience
  • Business and economic development
