The University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic and Otago University Students’ Association have condemned the proposed deferral of tertiary precinct work.
The project was designed to make it easier and more attractive for staff and students to travel in the area by bus, bike and on foot, but the council has proposed delaying construction until after 2030.
Dunedin City Council’s draft 10-year plan for 2021-31 includes $1million for preliminary planning work on the precinct in 2030.
Mr Drew said it made sense to start construction work after the central city upgrade.
City councillors are due to listen to counterarguments at a hearing on the draft 2021-31 plan next week.
