A green light for Auckland's America's Cup village.

The Environment Court has granted resource consent for the event's bases and associated infrastructure and activities.

Mayor Phil Goff says the city can now get on and create the infrastructure needed for the team bases and ensure a great event for Auckland and New Zealand.

He says over the next couple of months Team New Zealand move into the Viaduct Events Centre to begin its preparation for the Cup defence.

Building will start on the Hobson Wharf base for Luna Rossa.

After that the hazardous substances tanks at the South end of Wynyard Point will be demolished.
