Carisbrook’s cost issue for meeting
By David Loughrey
The Carisbrook stadium and car park could cost $439,000 a year to maintain after the Dunedin City Council takes over the properties next year. That information is just one matter to consider when a group of “stakeholders” meets at Carisbrook next Monday, beginning a public consultation process on the future of the ground.
An invitation to the meeting asked those invited to “present your ideas for the future of the facility”.
Cr Richard Walls said yesterday the meeting was not just for stakeholders, and anyone could attend.
A timetable shows a forum would be set up on the council’s website for the public to post ideas, and a public meeting held at Carisbrook on July 8, with a deadline for proposals of July 26.

Toilets overlooked for west stadium stand (page 3)

Liquids and spicy foods may need to be off-limits in the west stand of the new Forsyth Barr Stadium. It has no toilets. Dunedin Venues Management Ltd CEO David Davies said in a worst case scenario, Dunedin’s new stadium would have to bring in portapotties for big events.
Davies declined to say how much money would be needed to relieve the problem. “We’re going to ask for as much as we can get…”
