Christchurch City Councillors Back 'Controversial' Upgrades To Hagley Oval
Published August 30, 2013
Controversial upgrades to Hagley Park's cricket oval in central Christchurch, New Zealand "have been backed by city councillors" on Thursday, according to Kurt Bayer of the NEW ZEALAND HERALD. The 11 votes to three majority decision gives Canterbury Cricket a ground lease for its proposed development, "which includes a raised embankment, new pavilion and retractable lighting towers." It is "a major boost in the city's bid" to bring the ground up to int'l standard and the ability to host three 2015 Cricket World Cup games. The Environment Court "granted the ground resource consent earlier this month, with strict conditions on its use, including capacity and the number of matches a year" (NZ HERALD, 8/29).
