The Targa South Island Rally has the go-ahead to run in
the Dunedin area in October.
Some Otago Peninsula residents opposed closing Highcliff Rd
for the event but they were not supported by the local
community board, and yesterday the Dunedin City Council
agreed unanimously and without debate to allow the various
road closures requested for the rally.
Cr John Bezett said the event was potentially very good for
the city and while there would be some inconvenience,
‘‘nothing would ever happen if you listened to everyone
opposed to something''.
