Views on America’s Cup village

The Herald reports:

Aucklanders have rejected the latest America’s Cup village proposal that involves a wharf extension into Waitemata Harbour the size of a rugby field, a new poll shows.

The poll, commissioned by the lobby group Stop Stealing Our Harbour, shows 70 per cent of Aucklanders want the village to be built on existing waterfront land and structures.

Just 27 per cent support the latest proposal revealed on Wednesday for a 45m x 220m extension to Halsey Wharf to house Team New Zealand and one other syndicate, possibly Luna Rossa.

Curia did this poll. As you can see, the views were firmly behind not losing more waterfront to another wharf.
