6 July 2007

A Community Liaison Group has been formed and is now meeting regularly and providing feedback from the Frankton area to Council and the event promoter regarding issues arising from the V8 Supercars event.

The group is made up of individuals from the Frankton area and surrounds that are interested in the effects and benefits of the V8 event to the area. Each member was appointed based on their in-depth understanding of the local neighbourhood and demonstrated established links with the community. The group also consists of a representative of the consent holder (Hamilton City Council) and the event promoter (CSM Ltd).

The formation of the V8 Community Liaison Group is a condition of the resource consent that was instigated by Hamilton City Council. The resource consent determines that the group meet every three months however, upon formation, the group agreed to meet six weekly to maximise the group's effectiveness.

Members of the V8 Community Liaison Group can be contacted by email and are happy to help out in facilitating any questions or concerns regarding the event.
