Government officials walk around the Steamer Basin with representatives from the Dunedin waterfront partners yesterday as part of a visit ahead of the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) considering an application on the redevelopment of the city's waterfront.

The project partners, led by the Dunedin City Council, are seeking a multimillion-dollar grant from the fund.

A city council spokesman said the meeting provided a chance for the officials to gather more information and ask about progress on the project. The proposal is likely to be considered by the PGF panel next month, the spokesman said.

A provincial development unit spokesman said the visit allowed officials involved in the assessment of the application to familiarise themselves with the proposal.

The project has already been given $820,000 for a full feasibility assessment and the development of a business case, including engineering, environmental and commercial feasibility.
