To host international day/night games, Christchurch's Hagley Oval will require six lighting towers, but there's strong opposition to the proposal.
What do you think? Should the lights be installed so the city can host more cricket matches? Or should Hagley Park be left alone? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
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.

Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals

Now, as you may remember, we held a draw for a brand-new iPad, in November, to celebrate the opening of our showroom.
We are pleased to announce the winner - Kerri Hullen who's name was pulled out of the hat by our wonderful neighbour, pharmacist Conrad Fleischmann from Hillmorton Pharmacy.
Aspiring Kitchens transformed Kerri's kitchen, as you can see from the photos, brightening up the whole room in just a few days.
