What do you think of Christchurch's stadium plan?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.

The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.

The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.

Avonhead Water quality and taste

Emma Luisa from Russley

Hi everyone,
Is your water tastes the same before chlorination? Our water from our tap tastes almost unbearable. It never tastes the same after chlorination introduced. Do you notice the difference? Or its just ours. Can I please hear your thoughts about your tap water?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks
