Dunedin wants to become one of the "world's great small cities", and a redesigned central business district is a big part of that plan.

A report from O3 Collective notes there is an opportunity for the city's main street to become a destination ''that people want to spend time in and is a lively and active place to do business''.

Laura Procter is working 12-hour days but her phone is going non-stop with constant requests for bookings.

That was unlikely as the owner of Bad Hair is fully booked-up until late June.

''The majority of people have been so lovely and so supportive, but there have been a couple of people who have been so ridiculous it makes you want to hide under your desk,'' the Dunedin hairdresser said. Continue reading here.

The Commerce Commission is reviewing a massive spend-up signalled by an Otago lines company.

Aurora Energy has signalled it needs to spend $400 million to address historic under-investment in its ageing power pole network which has led to safety issues and unplanned power cuts.

Aurora, under its draft plan to the Commerce Commission, estimated an average household’s monthly electricity bill would increase by 18 per cent, or about $21 a month in residential line charges.

The final proposed line charges from the Dunedin City Council-owned company, via another holding company, would be known in June.
