The decision to reduce capacity for a new stadium in Christchurch -- could result in a drop public confidence in the council.
A majority of councillors decided yesterday to lower the number of seats of a new multipurpose, covered stadium from 30-thousand to 25-thousand.
That's after they were advised the stadium was over budget by about 130-million dollars.
Christchurch City Councillor Sam MacDonald, who voted against the decision, told Mike Yardley it's very short sighted.
"We've missed a once in a lifetime opportunity, and unfortunately, it just shows a real lack of understanding about those long term needs for our city and also for the wider South Island."
