Consideration of Extraordinary Items

 

Pursuant to Standing Order 2.4.6, the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board agreed to receive a verbal update on the possible relocation of InterCity bus terminal from Hobson Street.

Ralph Webster Manager Development Programmes advised the meeting and the following points were noted:

 

·                     The resource consent which established SkyCity in the early 1990s has a condition requiring the bus to be located within the development. Its removal would require an application under section 127 of the Resource Management Act 1991.

·                     The resource consents department has not received a section 127 application to date. If an application were received and considered to be “significant” or “contentious” it would be referred to the Regulatory Committee to determine as the decision-maker.
