Part of Dunedin's former art gallery at Logan Park would be knocked down to make more room for the University Oval cricket ground under plans unveiled by the Dunedin City Council today.

The DCC said in a statement previous plans to completely demolish or move the old gallery had been shelved and the council would instead apply for resource consent to remove part of the building.

The move was designed to improve Otago's test cricket venue which is beside the gallery building. If consent was granted the extended ground would have similar dimensions to the Basin Reserve in Wellington, the statement said.
