As a result, the region misses out on international artists who play in other cities such as Auckland and Christchurch.
This comes as an economic cost, as we are missing out on events like rock concerts that can attract large numbers of people to the city.
The Council is doing work to determine the viability of developing an 8000–12,000 seat indoor arena in the central city.
If a decision is made to proceed further, a detailed business case will be developed and partnership-funding options explored.
We plan to start the project in 2021 and finish it in 2023.
We have provisionally budgeted $65 million.
