Why keep plugging Facebook group The DCC has lost the plot. Sorry ODT, what’s your fascination there. It’s a minor thing of little substance and is not a true reflection of the public view – get out and speak to Dunedin citizens and group leaders if you want the real picture.

    Just off the top of my head: Otago House – two new floors; refurbishment of Westpac House; Burnside industrial area – 4 new industrial buildings; Green Island – new industrial building; Bunnings Warehouse site; St Clair esplanade; Psychology 2, University of Otago; Science building refurbishment [University of Otago]; Wall St; Santa Sabina; old Outback site; New World Centre City; Golden Centre; Works Infrastructure site – Green Island. Yep, not much going on at all Mr Chin and none of it due to the Stadium.
