Friend of the submitter Plan Change 78

Adam Parkinson made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Adam Parkinson to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Adam Parkinson

Dear Auckland Council,

Council has notified Public Change 78 and offered the following services on their website:

We understand that RMA processes can be a little daunting, so we have appointed a 'Friend of Submitter' who is an independent advisor to help submitters.

The Friend of the submitter can help explain the process, advise you on lodging your submission, how to express your views, and what to do after lodging your submission.

This service is available throughout the submission period and in the lead-up to the hearings.

My request is for the Terms of Reference for this service, the contract terms agreed upon to aecom for this service, the budget allocated to this, and where this budget is being allocated from in council for this service, and who approved this expenditure.
I would also like to know how potential conflicts of interest will be managed.
I want to know why council decided to find external providers for this service.
(and obviously, at what cost).

Yours faithfully,

Adam Parkinson
