Thanks for your interest in the scope and structure of Te Manatū Waka Ministry of Transport’s LTIB. The first consultation period has now closed, and you can find a summary of submissions here: Download the Summary of Submissions Document.
The second round of consultation seeking feedback on the draft of our Long-term Insights Briefing (LTIB) is now closed.
We are seeking your views on the final draft of our LTIB. Your views will help shape how we further develop this work and will be incorporated into the final version that is presented at Select Committee in June 2022.
Long-term Insights Briefings (LTIB) are future focussed documents that are intended to provide greater visibility of future challenges and opportunities that may affect New Zealand and New Zealand society. They provide government agencies an opportunity to think beyond their day-to-day business and consider those issues that do not often get priority but have important implications for the future of their organisations.
Each agency is required to develop a LTIB at least once every three years. Chief executives are required to select the subject matter for the briefing. They must do this by considering those trends, risks and opportunities that are particularly relevant to their department’s functions. The inaugural briefings need to be presented to Parliament by 30 June 2022.
The Ministry’s LTIB is focussed on autonomous vehicles
The Ministry has chosen to investigate the impact automated vehicles could have on the transport system and transport outcomes. This is an opportunity to take a “deep dive” into a specific area of transport that we believe will present significant challenges and opportunities for the transport system over the next 10-15 years.
For further context and information on automated vehicles, please refer to the background documents below on this webpage.
Opportunities to engage on the Ministry’s LTIB
The first round of consultation was open for three weeks and closed on 17 September 2021. It was on the scope and structure of our LTIB. The Ministry provided information around why the topic of automated vehicles had been selected, the scope of the LTIB in relation to this topic, and a high-level outline of the content to be included in the LTIB.
Thank you to everyone who submitted their feedback. A summary of submissions that was used to help build and strengthen the Ministry’s LTIB paper and is available below.
