Plan set out for Sports Academy
By David Loughrey
Final planning for the New Zealand Academy of Sport, South Island, to move to the Forsyth Barr Stadium site in Dunedin could begin within weeks, and building could start soon after next year’s Rugby World Cup. While the proposal was still in a feasibility stage, academy chief executive Kereyn Smith said yesterday the organisation hoped for a two-storey building at the northeast corner of the stadium, either connected or with easy access to the stadium.
The $3.8 million project hinges on a resource consent decision for demolition of three bays of the former art gallery at Logan Park, a decision that could be announced this week.
Cr Hudson might like to think upon where exactly he stands in relation to the CURRENT Logan Park Art Gallery redevelopment application for resource consent (applicant: Dunedin City Council).
His finding funds towards, ah, let me see, putting another floor on the old Logan Park Art Gallery building (in the interests of whom??) while the Council is openly in another process with parties to conserve and redevelop the building, has been at the height of disingenious. What’s that phrase about Left Field, being completely out of the game park.
Time to leave your elected representative role at Council, Mr Hudson. Yeah, putting that well before I start in on the interests of Ms Smith.
