Petitioning Parliament to support businesses
On 1 October 2019 we launched a petition to call for assistance for businesses severely impacted by CRL construction. After months of urging the Minister of Transport to show human decency and support for businesses severely impacted by City Rail Link construction, we are given no choice but to petition Parliament to seek action.
The petition asks central government to commit, along with Auckland Council, to enable City Rail Link to provide appropriate business disruption support from the project budget. This is an unprecedented situation, with businesses facing a situation way out of their control. It will need a robust mechanism with clear criteria to ensure fairness. The Hon Nikki Kaye, MP for Auckland Central, will present the petition to Parliament to consider once signatures have been obtained.
We are asking people to show their support and sign this petition.
