Residential parking report received for V8 race

14 July 2004

Residential parking report received for V8 race

Organisers of the Auckland V8 International Street Race have submitted additional information detailing how residential parking will be reserved in more than 50 streets around the race circuit.

A request for more information about how residential parking would be maintained during the street race event was sought by Barker & Associates – the independent consultants responsible for analysing submissions to the resource consent application on behalf of Auckland City Council.

The attached report prepared by Meridian Planning Consultants responds to this request for more information.

The report details how on-street parking will be maintained for residents of Freemans Bay, Ponsonby and St Mary’s Bay during the three-day event and says more than 50 streets east of Ponsonby Road will be assessed to make sure suitable provision is made for residents.

The report on parking becomes part of the information filed with the resource management consent application for the event.

Three independent commissioners will hear the application. That hearing is expected to be held early next month.
