The organisers of the new NZ Flower & Garden Show that was to have been held at Bastion Point in November has been pushed back by a year.
The press release says: “… upon application we have discovered that the event triggers several clauses in the Reserve Board Act which require a longer application period”. I always wonder why consenting isn’t understood well before an event is announced – we had a major music festival cancelled here this year for the same sort of reasons.
Read the full press release here. Disappointing but the venue choice was always going to throw up some special obstacles. The good news is that everyone sounds committed to bringing the show to fruition.
