Submission on America's Cup 36 Resource Consent Application

Submission
Issue date: 
Mon 28 May 2018
We support the hosting of AC36 in the Wynyard Basin/Hobson Wharf area event in principle, but suggest that there is potential for more than minor adverse environmental effects (particularly in regard to transport and access, access to public open space and views, and community and business disruption) which should be addressed in any approval of consent for AC36. We seek that a number of consent conditions are applied around consent duration and plans to manage effects in a co-ordinated way.
