A big Tick for the Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Wynne Gray has an op ed in the Herald on Sunday that endorses the new Dunedin Stadium as a very appropriate $200 mill investment.

He goes on to relate that to the as yet uncertain future of ChCh's AMI or Lancaster Park as it was known.

If that venue is rooted as the rumours suggest, then I agree with Wynne's assessment.

While I have no idea of the dimensions of the plot of land, there is a block on the SE cnr of the Memorial Av Russley Rd Roundabout that would be worth an investigation. At present CHCH Airport Company is denying residential development consent for obvious reasons but with its access, North, South and West plus the Airport and the City, allied to its geological stability it would be worth a look.
