Stop the Stadium may seek judicial review

By David Loughrey

Stop the Stadium has sought legal advice on the possibility of a judicial review of the Otago Regional Council’s decision to help fund the stadium.

President Bev Butler confirmed yesterday to the Otago Daily Times the organisation had instructed specialist public law firm Chen Palmer to look into “whether the Otago Regional Council are acting legally”.

$13M+ for Carisbrook

### ODT Tuesday, March 10, 2009 page 12
In a letter to the editor, S Burton of Dunedin asks:

“Why would the Otago Rugby Football Union go from a position, alluded to in a secret memorandum of understanding with the Carisbrook Stadium Trust in 2007, offering the sale of Carisbrook to the CST for a nominal $1 sum to one of offering Carisbrook to the CST/Dunedin City Council for a market price of $13 million-plus in February 2009? Secondly, why would the CST/DCC agree to this purchase, as reported in the ODT (6.2.09) when the DCC has consistently voted to support a replacement facility?”

Read the full letter in print and digital editions.

Er, call DCC on 4774000 and CST on 4792823 if you have any queries.
