Poll: Do you think Christchurch's new stadium seats should be reduced?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

A majority of city leaders have decided to reduce the capacity of Christchurch’s new stadium, from 30,000 seats to a minimum of 25,000, to bring the project in on budget.

Councillors and senior staff attended the extraordinary meeting on Thursday morning to decide on a design change to the stadium after it was publicly revealed the original preferred concept, which could have up to 30,000 seats, would have been over budget by up to $131.4 million.

A majority of councillors endorsed the staff recommendation to lower the number of seats to 25,000 – but designers have been directed to try and find efficiencies moving forward to get the capacity to about 27,500.

Let us know your thoughts below.
