Pocket park's name changed

03:16, Sep 21 2012

The new pocket park being built on the corner of Queen and Charles streets will be called Liz Davidson Pl instead of Davidson Pl.

The Marlborough District Council announced at the start of this month that the park would be named Davidson Pl in honour of Marlborough's first woman mayor Liz Davidson. But Marlborough Mayor Alistair Sowman said yesterday the council had agreed to change the name after receiving a lot of comments pointing out the name could be confused with other well-known Marlborough Davidsons.
