Fancy running a business behind bars?
The Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust is seeking business proposals for the old prison building which it has rebranded Dunedin Gaol.
Restoring the Heritage New Zealand category 1-listed building – the only surviving building representing a Victorian courtyard prison in the country – was going to take “years and years”, trust chairwoman Virginia Nicholls said.
To do that, a lot more income was required, which was why the trust was looking for suitable tenants, she said.
