Comment on Conflict of interest raised in council’s rejection of gallery offer by Sadie Dean.

If the gallery is built in the CBD it will bring an extra 53,000 people!
If it’s built a couple of miles away south of The gGap it will bring – how many?
Considering that these extra people are going to be traveling 1000s of kilometres to get to the gallery what’s an extra couple of Ks.
Why are they so obsessed with the CBD? 99% of visitors to the gallery will check out the town centre regardless of its location.
