Multimillion-dollar Lancaster Park plan approved, but there is no money

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The 6-hectare former Lancaster Park will be converted into three sports fields once the stadium is fully demolished.

The sports fields are likely to be used for rugby and soccer in the winter and cricket in the summer. The plans also shows space for 105 car parks, toilets and changing facilities, a play area, a possible sports pavilion and rose beds either side of the memorial gates on Stevens St.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Ilam

"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”
