Eden Park neighbours fed up with late permit applications

Some residents near Eden Park are frustrated with last-minute permit applications for the Rugby World Cup.

An application has been made to the Rugby World Cup Authority for 100 carparking spaces at the Kowhai Intermediate School for tournament personnel.

The authority is also considering an application for late-night sound and light system checks at the stadium.

The Eden Park Neighbours Association says it hopes these applications will be altered.

Association president Mark Donnelly says he expects the last-minute applications will be pushed through quickly without considering residents.
