$750,000 a year for community use of stadium

The Dunedin City Council is to spend $750,000 per year to subsidise community groups’ use of the Forsyth Barr Stadium, following a Council vote yesterday:

Councillors at yesterday’s full council meeting voted to accept a new service level agreement between the council and Dunedin Venues Management Ltd, the company running the city’s loss-making roofed venue.

The agreement confirmed the council would pay $750,000 a year to DVML in return for enhanced access to the venue – at reduced or no cost – for community groups.
