Disgruntled businesses and property owners have filed an unprecedented High Court action against Auckland Council to stop the ongoing Queen St pedestrian trial which they argue is illegal and has caused “significant economic harm,” NZ Herald reports. On Wednesday, lawyers for the Save the Queen Street incorporated society walked into Auckland Council’s city headquarters to serve them with judicial review proceedings. The society is applying for an injunction to halt a new $1.1 million “makeover” to the existing Queen St barriers (beginning May 10) which they argue is unlawful.
