DCC set for 'umbrella' stadium vote

The Dunedin City Council is set to vote on an "umbrella resolution" to go ahead with the Forsyth Barr Stadium, required as part of a contract to sell land to the University of Otago at the site.

One of the conditions in the contract was the council, as the vendor, proceed with the construction of the stadium, finance and corporate support general manager Athol Stephens said in a report to today's council meeting.

"While the council has passed many separate resolutions, each relating to a particular aspect of the approval process of the stadium, there has not been an 'umbrella' resolution for the stadium as a whole."

The report recommends the council vote to proceed with the project "in accordance with all previous resolutions".

Mayor Peter Chin said the vote was "part of tidying everything up".
