7_ The Auckland Plan requires a number of reviews at varying times after adoption. The annual time frame for the Implementation Update (Figure 1) is intended to identify at the earliest possible time, issues with alignment and progress on major projects and other actions identified in the Plan. Such issues could undermine results unless they are identified in a timely manner. Problems with implementation must be identified at the earliest possible time, prior to three-yearly monitoring and evaluation reviews of the Auckland Plan targets (see Chapter 15: Measuring Progress) and land supply.
8_ Council officers will continue to work with central government officials to seek further alignment between targets in the Auckland Plan and corresponding targets in central government’s “Better Public Services” initiative, and report any further recommended refinement of specific targets to the Auckland Plan Committee as part of the first Annual Implementation Update.
