Fencing is to be erected along two sides of the Hawke’s Bay Opera House this morning (Friday 26th September).

Engineering advice received in March resulted in the closure of the theatre, followed shortly after by the closure of other public spaces in the Municipal Buildings. Building tenant, Hutchinsons Furnishers subsequently moved from their premises in the complex to a site further north on Heretaunga Street. 

Hastings District Council Acting CEO John O’Shaughnessy says “Council has had the initial engineering reports peer reviewed and the latest indication is that there is some concern at the stability of the balconies that surround the Opera House in the event of an earthquake.”
