Resource Consent lodged for SkyPath



August 20, 2014

Media release: Resource Consent lodged for SkyPath

The charitable trust behind the SkyPath project is celebrating the lodgment of SkyPath’s Resource Consent application.

AHB Pathway Trustee Alex Swney says “SkyPath is the link to enable safe and pleasant walking and cycling between the North Shore and the heart of the City, it’s what every other international harbour city has. We’re excited to see Waterfront Auckland’s walking and cycling promenade through Westhaven under construction and welcome NZTA’s advice that they plan to have the ‘SeaPath’ link to Takapuna built in time for SkyPath.”

Project Director Bevan Woodward says “This is a marvelous example of what a community initiative can achieve. We’ve developed a professional and comprehensive solution for a complex and challenging environment. It’s taken longer than expected but our Resource Consent team have been very thorough in considering all the issues and there have been many stakeholders to engage with.”

AHB Pathway Trustee Christine Rose says “This is a huge milestone, it’s all about making SkyPath a reality, a reality that is generations overdue. It will transform our Harbour Bridge from a ‘vehicles only’ motorway crossing to a bridge that represents a more accessible and sustainable Auckland.”

Andy Smith, Trustee and President of Living Streets Aotearoa said “This is a great step that connects the shores of the Waitematā and makes Auckland a more walkable city.”

The Trust has requested that the Resource Consent application be fully notified to ensure all interested parties can provide their input. The process for public notification will be confirmed by Auckland Council in due course.
