Feedback

Have your say on future fibre investment focus areas

Today we published our consultation paper seeking stakeholder views on key investment focus areas for our first regulatory period (RP1) under the new building blocks regulatory model being developed by the Commerce Commission. Find out below how you can get more information and have your say. 

NB: Due to COVID-19 developments and the ongoing impact to our industry and all of NZ, we are reviewing how we might best consult on this matter and will be in touch soon with further details. However, in the meantime we are publishing our consultation paper to allow as much time as possible for you to review.

What’s happening

In our latest stakeholder update, we informed you that we would issue a consultation paper, hold workshops and invite your views as we prepare our first proposal under new regulatory arrangements.

Consultation paper

Today we are publishing that consultation paper, seeking stakeholder views on key investment focus areas for our first regulatory period (RP1) under the new building blocks regulatory model being developed by the Commerce Commission. RP1 will control our revenue from January 2022 to December 2024. You can find the paper here.

As well as inviting views on investment focus areas the consultation paper introduces the new regulatory arrangements and how they work; and provides an overview of our planning for RP1.

We’ve deliberately kept this paper succinct, recognising other demands on your time. 

Workshops

We’re also planning workshops during the consultation period to provide an opportunity for questions and to dive deeper in specific areas.

We plan to hold two online workshops: one to provide an overview of the consultation paper, and one for a deeper dive on the contents and any questions you might have.

Due to COVID-19 developments, we are reviewing how and when we might be able to hold these workshops, acknowledging the challenges presented to our industry by this unprecedented situation. We will be in touch with further detail on this soon.

Your feedback will help us firm up plans for RP1 in the middle of this year, ready for our proposal to the Commerce Commission in October.

Next steps & contact

You can register for the workshops by emailing RP1@chorus.co.nz.

We will also make recordings of the workshops available if you’re unable to attend at the scheduled times. If you have any questions or suggestions for the workshops, please contact us using this email address or via your Chorus Account Manager.
