pdf MoT Review of the Regional Development Transport Fund - 7 December 2007

This submission is to provide the Ministry of Transport (MOT) with information about the Regional Development Fund (Regional Development Activity Class) that has operated in Northland and Tairawhiti since the 2002/2003 financial year.   It is intended to be a balanced view of what the Regional Development Fund (RDF) has achieved in the two regions and to compare what has been achieved with the programme of work indicated in the regional studies that lead to the establishment of the Fund.   The submission is structured to cover the key issues of: the work completed to date; the investment in processing associated with the RDF programme; the work required to complete the project; and the funding options for the remaining work.   The balance of the submission covers the forestry industry involvement in the process, issues that arose (primarily early in the programme) and other aspects.
