Community has more time to express themselves on Forbury Park
There is now even more time for people to say how they would like Dunedin’s Forbury Park to be used in the future, with the consultation period being extended until Tuesday, October 5th.
The comment deadline has been pushed back due to the Covid-19 lockdown, and the two community walk-in sessions have been rescheduled.
Sessions will now take place at Dunedin Rugby Football Club (12 Moana Rua Road, St Kilda) on Monday September 20 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Tuesday September 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Any comments from the consultation will be used to help Harness Racing NZ and Forbury ParkTrotting Club decide the future of the site and will be taken into account when selecting a potential buyer for the field.
Forbury Park held its last race meeting on July 8 after the decision to close the park. A review of racing in Otago / Southland recommended that the site be closed.
Suggestions for land use so far have included a mix of residential properties ranging from low cost housing to high end housing; use some or all of it to mitigate flooding; allocate part of it to increase the playing fields of the St Clair school; and possibly work around some of the current buildings in the park.
People can find more information and give their opinion on the Harness Racing New Zealand website. www.hrnz.co.nz/forburypark
Your comments are welcome until Tuesday, October 5 at 5 p.m.
