Stop Stealing Our Harbour - Americas Cup Village

America’s Cup Village Proposal

Stop Stealing Our Harbour congratulates Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Minister David Parker for achieving a viable plan for the America’s Cup syndicate bases and also Mayor Phil Goff and Auckland Council for their willingness to remain open-minded to developing workable options for the Cup Village.

Stop Stealing Our Harbour applaud the commonsense approach and innovative thinking which has resulted in less cost and intrusion into the harbour without reducing the effectiveness of the Cup Village concept.

We look forward to the progress of the proposal's design and any further refinements which can continue to limit harbour intrusion and reduce costs.

The Government's success in negotiating an early release of some of the Tank Farm for the America's Cup bases gives hope for Auckland's waterfront by starting the de-industrialisation of Wynyard Point.

The much planned and long-awaited Headland Park could now be in sight as a result of the Government's innovative America's Cup proposals.

About Stop Stealing Our Harbour:
Stop Stealing Our Harbour wants Ports of Auckland to halt all work on Bledisloe Wharf extensions. It is an advocacy group comprising representatives of boating, political, business, and professional organisations as well as lawyers and architects.
