AUCK­LAND Cricket has no in­ten­tion of leav­ing Eden Park.

‘‘We’ve known about the sub­mis­sion for quite some time and it’s pretty ob­vi­ous to say that we are op­posed to it,’’ chief ex­ec­u­tive of Auck­land Cricket Mark Cameron says.

‘‘Eden Park openly ac­knowl­edges that we have the rights to play cricket here and un­til we let go of those rights it will be a cricket ground.

‘‘We will put in a counter sub­mis­sion, but at the same time we are acutely aware that this is it for us, this is our home, it has been our home for over 100 years and we are not plan­ning on go­ing any­where.’’

Cameron says its im­por­tant to pro­tect any green space in Auck­land, in­clud­ing the num­ber two field.

Fu­ture fo­cus: Eden Park has big plans for the fu­ture.
