The badly damaged Greenpark Hall will be demolished in the next two weeks, officials have just announced.

Selwyn District Council Assets Property Co-ordinator Karen Bartlett said it been working closely with its insurers over the future of seven earthquake-damaged buildings owned by the council.

A decision was made that it was uneconomical to repair the Greenpark Hall, because of the extent of the damage.

"The Greenpark Hall Committee and the local community will be involved in discussions over options for a future facility," she said.

The other council-owned buildings that have been closed due to earthquake damage include: Doyleston Hall, the Sheffield Memorial Pool changing rooms, Lakeside Community Memorial Hall, Dunsandel Hall, Glentunnel Post Office and Tai Tapu Library.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
