Preliminary work to realign State Highway 88 to allow for the
Awatea St stadium in Dunedin is set to start this year, after
Dunedin city councillors voted to include $1.6 million for
the project in the city's budget.
On March 17, the Dunedin stadium got what was probably the
clearest message of political support when 10 of 14
councillors at a Dunedin City Council finance and strategy
committee meeting voted to "commit" to the project in Awatea
A new system of fines of between $250 and $2000 has been
introduced for "building offences" - including anything from
building, altering or demolishing without consent, to
permitting use of insanitary or unsafe buildings.
