Wynyard Edge Alliance held its third Community Liaison Group (CLG) meeting on 27 September to provide an update on the America’s Cup Programme alongside America’s Cup Event Ltd (ACE), Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Panuku Development Auckland and The Wynyard Edge Alliance.

The Wynyard Edge Alliance is the group responsible for delivery of the overall project and infrastructure for the 36th America’s Cup Regatta. The Panuku Development, as the Consent holder, is responsible for holding a Community Liaison Group meeting every month. The members of the Community Liaison Group are parties who were involved in the Environment Court process leading to the granting of the Resource Consent for the development of the bases and infrastructure.

The purpose of the meetings is to keep the parties updated as to what is planned and to get feedback on issues arising during the construction process.
