Save the Shore Dance Studios
This petition made change with 2,957 supporters!
Shore Dance has been located at its current purpose-built premises on Enterprise Street for the past three years. After a complaint from a neighbour, the Auckland Council now requires us to gain resource consent to continue running our classes at our current location. Due to the zone that our building is located in under the Unitary Plan, we may be forced to move out of our premises. This would have a significantly negative impact on the community of Birkenhead. Over 400 families would lose their local dance studios, a place where children and adults come to share their love of dance. As well as the many physical and mental benefits dance brings to our students, there is also the social aspect of great friendships and bonds formed within our Shore Dance family. In addition, surrounding businesses would suffer from a loss of business created from our students and families as they visit local cafes, eateries and retail shops during class time. We ask that you show your support in allowing Shore Dance to continue running from their current premises in Enterprise Street by signing this petition and helping us to continue this essential part of the Birkenhead community. We really want to keep Birkenhead vibrant!
