The Chairman of Remuera Business Association reports:
Panuku, the owners of Clonbern car park are determined to go ahead and demolish the car park on January 8th 2020 without alternative car parking available.
RBA have been trying to lease the vacant land across from New World supermarket, even though the owners were keen, there are some sticky points that Panuku are not revealing. Their only agenda is to demolish the car park so it takes the risk of ownership off them with no regard to the livelihoods of the local community.
This would mean a total closure of the Clonbern Road car park for at least 10 days, then maybe partial reopening as they progress moving North with the demolition, with a total disruption time of around 5 and half to 6 weeks
RBA have spoken to Parkables above the ANZ Bank to lease all available spaces up there, which will be free to the public.
The RBA are open to all ideas – contact email@example.com
