Works Notice – Union Street East Car Park – Saturday 30th July
Work is scheduled to take place to demolish the storage building at the back of the Union East Car Park. On Saturday 30th July contractors will fence off the areas of work and on Monday 1st August demolition will start.
Please see the attached map clearly showing the area of works. All works will be coned off and signed accordingly indicating “Trucks crossing” and “No parking” to establish clear areas of work.
There will be four authorised parks along the side of the old bowling club building that will be coned off to ensure that trucks can access the entry – these four spaces are not shown in full on the plan.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused during these works.
Thank You, Project Team

Have your say about a ‘Universal Record of Achievement’
Would you like to be able to get an ‘official’ electronic record of your learning that you could print, download or email?
How about being able to log into your own ‘learner home page’ on the NZQA website and view your most relevant or up-to-date qualifications?
The NZQA is designing a prototype of what a ‘Universal Record of Achievement' could look like for learners – so make sure you have your say!
Prototypes are now available on the NZQA website – what do you think?
Thanks for your feedback!
