Council returns cheque
Auckland Council is returning
a $7.5 million deposit cheque to Tournament Parking.
Council received the cheque on Friday in an unsolicited
offer from Tournament Parking to buy the Downtown Carpark
for $75 million.
Auckland Council Chief Executive,
Stephen Town, said the cheque was being returned as council
has not made any decision about selling the carpark ahead of
developing its Long-term Plan.
“The carpark is not
currently for sale. If there is to be any divestment of
parking assets, a proposal to do so would be included in the
Long-term Plan for public consultation,” said Mr Town.
