It’s believed that more thought needs to go into the Auckland Mayor's plans to sell the long-term lease of the Ports of Auckland.
Wayne Brown is putting forward two options for the port in his proposed 10-year budget, which also includes a rates rise of 7.5%.
He proposes either keeping the business and gradually releasing land for public use or selling the lease to raise up to $3 billion.
