Formal feedback on V8s closing this week

Formal feedback on V8s closing this week

26 MAY 2008

For Immediate Release

The process of gathering feedback on the Hamilton 400 V8 event from interested parties will close off at the end of this week to ensure momentum is maintained on the formal review.

Council and the promoters have already received hundreds of comments endorsing the event as well as a variety of suggestions for improvement in future years. Many of the comments have come as a result of three public meetings that have been held with the Frankton community and city retailers.

Feedback for incorporation into the formal review can still be sent to v8supercars@hcc.govt.nz until the end of the day on Friday.

Comments and suggestions received to date are being reviewed and sorted so that they can be assigned to the appropriate part of the review in order to create the most value from the feedback.

The V8 review is likely to release findings and recommendations as information and reports are completed.

In the meantime, Council and Hamilton 400 event organisers have agreed to leave some minor parts of the event infrastructure in place in Frankton to ensure best use of resources and the ongoing management of traffic in the area.

Some concrete barriers are to remain at key points including the Founders roundabout and along Mill Street. As well as having practical traffic management application, the barriers serve as a reminder and celebration of the fact that the Hamilton 400 is now an integral part of Frankton and the city.

Gordon Campbell: On DHB Deficits And Free Trade

Currently the world is looking on aghast at the Trump administration’s plans to slash Obamacare, mainly in order to finance massive tax changes that will deliver most of their gains to the wealthy.

Greens' Response: Slum-Like Rentals Exposed In Renting Review

“...The grim findings of the review are a wakeup call about the true state of rentals in this country. Too many renters are festering in slum-like conditions under the thumb of landlords who have largely unchecked powers and ignore tenants’ complaints when it suits them.” More>>


Gordon Campbell: On The Life And Times Of Peter Dunne

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>


Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Campaign Launch

One of the key motifs of Ardern’s speech was her repeated use of the phrase – “Now, what?” Cleverly, that looks like being Labour’s response to National’s ‘steady as it goes’ warning against not putting the economic ‘gains’ at risk. More>>


Lyndon Hood: Social Welfare, Explained
