Infrastructure

Infrastructure is critical for economic growth and social wellbeing.  Transport, energy, communications are all reliant on infrastructure. 

New Zealand has particular infrastructure challenges due to the distribution of its small population and its challenging geography and topography.  This requires considerable investment and ongoing costs.

Federated Farmers supports increased investment in infrastructure and for that investment to be efficient and cost effective.  However, that’s balanced by the need for landowners hosting infrastructure to be fairly compensated for loss of property or an impairment of their property rights.
