The Tamahere Recreation Reserve and Piazza project has not had a cost blow-out, says the Waikato District Council.

The council has been moved to counter a media report that the budget for Tamahere Park has blown its budget with a $1.6m cost that was around four times the original plan.

But the reported figures – dubbed “Monopoly money” by one councillor – are supplier quotes and cost estimates, not actual costs, the council said in a statement.
