Why this petition matters

Started by Gordon Brown

Everyone in Taranaki will be paying up to $50m, plus interest, plus GST for the next quarter of a century. Business owners get to pay even more!

And all because of this way over-the-top 'repair' bill the Taranaki Regional Council is stinging us for.

We support rugby, but NOT AT ANY COST, This is not a multi-sport stadium, it will be a stadium for professional rugby players.

Independent costings show that no more than $33m need be spent. If only one grandstand was replaced, and the other demolished and replaced by a grass embankment the cost would be even less. The playing area could be widened to allow international cricket to be played there as well.

Send TRC the message that they need to cut their costs, for the sake of our children and their children.

On behalf of every other sport in the region as well as long-suffering ratepayers, we urge you to sign this petition.

It's not too late!
