Basil Walker to appeal High Court decision

This morning Newstalk ZB news said Basil Walker, of Queenstown, intends to appeal the High Court decision on the case he took unsuccessfully against the Otago Regional Council.

CST has indicated it will not stop construction in view of the likely court action.

We await further news. Perhaps in D Scene tomorrow…

Stadium battle continues

The legal battle over Dunedin’s new stadium is continuing as another appeal goes to the High Court.
[I assume this should read Court of Appeal.EK.]

Queenstown property developer Basil Walker is appealing the High Court’s ruling dismissing his argument that the Otago Regional Council had acted illegally in funding the stadium.

The Stop the Stadium group also has a hearing in the Court of Appeal next month, but the Carisbrook Stadium Trust is proceeding with construction of the project.

The Otago Regional Council contributed $37.5 million towards building the $197 million stadium.
