D-Scene, a Dunedin community newspaper, has been closed by the The Southland Times.
The paper, launched five years ago, published its final edition yesterday.
Southland Times general manager Sue Gregory said the decision to close its Dunedin community newspaper, D-Scene, was ''part of the division's overall strategy to realign the business so it can focus on its core Southland Times market''.
''This decision has not been made lightly as it has obvious implications for our eight staff in Dunedin.
''We are currently working through the details with affected staff and will explore redeployment options where appropriate.''
It is understood one reporter role will remain in the city.
