In February 2019 we asked Fourth Street consultants to examine the cost, programming and possible funding sources for a new multipurpose venue to accommodate 1,200 seated and 2,400 standing. This is part of the proposed, new CityPoint development on the site next to the bus station and Sidwell Street.
The study is looking at:
- the type of events that might be held and when
- how the site might be used most effectively, the size of the venue and where it might be located
- an estimate of the cost of building the venue and the cost of running it over 25 years
The findings of the study will be reported to our Council Executive on 11 November 2019.
