You’re invited to share your views
We’re inviting stakeholders and the wider public to give feedback until 5pm, Friday 17 September 2021.
What are Long-term Insights Briefings?
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 autonomous 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 autonomous vehicles, please refer to the background documents below on this webpage.
Opportunities to engage on the Ministry’s LTIB
There will be two opportunities for you to provide feedback on the LTIB.
The first opportunity is on the scope and structure of the topic the Ministry has selected (the consultation document). In the consultation document, we have provided you with information around why this topic has been selected, the scope of the LTIB in relation to this topic, and a high-level outline of the content that will be included in the LTIB.
In April/May 2022, we will again seek your feedback, but this time on a draft of the full LTIB.
Making a submission
We are interested in your views on how we have scoped the topic, and whether we have identified all of the areas we should be discussing to address it.
You can provide feedback by:
- Completing the online survey form
- Sending an email or written submission to LTIBconsultation@transport.govt.nz. Please indicate whether you are answering on behalf of yourself or an organisation. If organisation – please specify (optional)
The consultation period is open for three weeks until close of business Friday 17 September.
Your submission is public information and we will publish a summary of submissions.
Please note that your submission is also subject to the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). This means that other people will be able to obtain copies of submissions by making a request under the OIA. If you think there are grounds for your information to be withheld under the OIA, please note this in your submission. We will take your reasons into account and may consult with you when responding to requests under the OIA.
If you are planning to email submissions through an automated process or online platform (such as Facebook voting tools) please first inform email LTIBconsultation@transport.govt.nz to ensure your submissions are correctly recognised and considered.
