What is a TMA
TMA stands for Transport Management Association. Wynyard Quarter TMA (WQ TMA) is an independent group of businesses whose mission is to be “the voice of Wynyard Quarter: creating a thriving environment for business and community and fostering economic vitality by building partnerships, and delivering targeted transport initiatives.”
The formation of a voluntary Transport Management Association (TMA) was a condition of the original planning consent issued for Wynyard Quarter (WQ). It was proposed in the District Plan in 2004 as a way in which transport and travel to the area could be managed to meet the needs of all stakeholders. For more background information see the FAQ section.
