A reply to residents who presented submissions to the council
opposing the Awatea St stadium has become "half the size of
The Forsyte Saga", as the council tries to clear up what
Mayor Peter Chin says are factual errors and wrong
After 36 hours at the table listening to 184 submitters, the
Dunedin City Council will now turn its attention to who gets
what, and how much ratepayers will pay when its annual plan
process is complete.
Phillip Cole urged the council to find innovative ways to
encourage people to use buses, and provided a few ideas of
his own, despite responsibility for public transport being
with the Otago Regional Council.
The Dunedin City Council needed to take a good look at its
consultation process following an acrimonious debate on the
stadium, and loss of public trust, Dunedin educationalist Pat
Harrison said in her submission.
