The Dominion Road Business Association has earned a Purple Flag accreditation, the international endorsement for a safe evening experience.
The accolade has been won under the umbrella of the association with the project funded by Albert-Eden Local Board.
Purple Flag was launched in the United Kingdom in 2009 by the Association of Town and City Management as a robust accreditation with annual assessments.
Today more than 100 destinations across Europe and the United Kingdom share the status.
But the Dominion Rd precinct is the first destination in the southern hemisphere to achieve Purple Flag status.
The accreditation process started in October 2019 and was finished in February 2021.
Dominion Road Business Association Manager Gary Holmes said having Purple Flag accreditation will further help Dominion Road achieve its vision of being a "world within a street".

Transport Minister Michael Wood has revealed plans to set up a new working group to create a business case for the project.
It will have six months to provide the Government with information on a preferred route, along with costs and funding options for the rapid transit system from Auckland's CBD to the Auckland International Airport.
The working group will comprise representatives from the Ministry of Transport, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Maori, Wood said.
