City and Regional Infrastructure Deals
What do we know, and what’s still unclear
A presentation by Patrick McVeigh, People and Places Lead at MartinJenkins.
The new coalition government has confirmed the introduction of city and regional infrastructure deals, alongside the establishment of a new National Infrastructure Agency and a $1.2 billion Regional Infrastructure Fund.
While we are still waiting for fuller details on these policies initiatives, there are lessons from how the city and regional deal model has been applied in the UK and Australia.
In this presentation, Patrick McVeigh, Lead – People and Places at draws upon his experience of city and regional deals overseas and provides some insights on what a deal is, and what it isn’t and what this might mean for Aotearoa and the Greater Wellington region.
