It's a green light for Auckland's SkyPath - it'll will go ahead with private backing.

It's been rubber stamped at the Council's Governing Body meeting today.

With some concerns raised over whether dogs should be allowed, on-leash, the Council has again unanimously voted in favour of the project.

It will be built and maintained by HRL Morrison and Co's Public Infrastructure Partnership Fund, with topping-up from the council should the SkyPath not be profitable post-build.

The decision by the Governing Body was strictly a formality after the Performance and Finance Committee confirmed the funding plan a week ago.

After more than five hours of submissions from six groups, intense questioning and debate, councillors unanimously voted in favour of the public private partnership.
