An ambitious plan to transform Dunedin's waterfront has been placed on hold, with mayor Aaron Hawkins insisting it is ''a delay, not a death knell''.
Last year Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones gave $19.9 million from the Government's Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) towards the project.
Fast-forward six months and the project has been mothballed by the Dunedin City Council, forcing it to withdraw from the PGF process.

Dunedin bus users may pay a flat fare as the regional council investigates a post-Covid-19 network.
The proposal, which will go to the Otago Regional Council on Wednesday, would see the introduction of a flat fare of $2 for adults and $1.50 cents for children per trip, using a new Bee Card ticketing system.
Meanwhile, bus travel would be free for SuperGold card holders, who currently can travel free between 9am and 3pm on weekdays.
