Council welcomes SkyPath closing statements

Auckland Council has welcomed the closing statement of the Environment Court, which indicated that consent would be granted, subject to refining of conditions, for SkyPath.

The resource consent was originally granted in July 2015 by independent commissioners, but was appealed by several community organisations.

SkyPath is a pedestrian and cycle path across the Waitematā Harbour, linking the North Shore to the CBD.

It is proposed to be 4m wide (and 6m wide at the five viewing platforms) and fixed to the eastern clip-on lane of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
