Franz feedback summary
A summary of the feedback received on the future of Franz Josef has been completed.
Comprising the responses of 102 submitters, the summary presents the information provided in the feedback and does not make any attempt to draw conclusions.
The Franz Josef Governance Group, consisting of representatives from local and central government, iwi, business and the community, met on 27 March 2018 to start the review of this information and to map a pathway forward. Business cases will be developed from here to assist with further discussions with Government.
