Group out to protect City Rise
By Damian George
One of Dunedin’s biggest heritage areas is under threat from increasing development of high density student flats, a new lobby group says.
About 60 people from around the area have banded together to form City Rise Up, a group tasked with “maintaining the character” of central Dunedin and stunting what it says is a major demographic shift.
There has been no meeting of signatories since the statement was published:

Joint effort to tackle Dunedin’s drinking
By Eileen Goodwin
A joint statement signed by 10 organisations signals a new approach to addressing the binge-drinking culture in parts of the city, Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says. Entitled “Dunedin North Issues”, the statement released yesterday says “pressing action” is required to keep young people safe, curb excesses of alcohol-fuelled behaviour, and protect the livelihoods of Dunedin businesses and tertiary education institutions.

Obviously there’s no money in us Ratepayers in the wider North end, Central and City Rise areas, where this slumming down is growing like a cancer. Are we all to be regarded as a calculated and acceptable loss in Dunedin’s march to become one of the worlds Great Small Cities?
Time to add the new lobby group ‘City Rise Up’ as a voice to be heard on the questionably named ‘North’ Dunedin Issues, Mr Mayor !
Good numbers reading Super Dave each day since it was posted.
But see the pond-dwelling piranhas today (real estate fraternity, Colliers ‘International’, REINZ et al) talking up student property and trying their corrupting best to hock off available properties to Aucklanders and Overseas cowboys (who may well have studied at Otago once, or their children) – in order to ratchet up rents, as the absentee scum they always are, mostly running down the housing stocks while they collect the cash and run.
