    This meeting is to agree which options Council will seek feedback from the community on during engagement between July - October. After Local Body Elections in October, the new Council will meet to consider community feedback and decide on which option to progress. It is likely that the Council’s Long Term Plan will need to be amended, in which case a final decision is expected around March 2020.

    At the July 9 meeting Councillors will be asked to make decisions on:

    1. Which facility option(s) should progress to Community Engagement.

    2. Which funding option(s) should progress to Community Engagement.

  • Naenae Pool and Fitness Suite - Update as of May 2019

    about 1 month ago
    Naenae pool and fitness suite v2

    The Naenae Learners’ Pool was closed on 1 December 2018 as a precaution because that part of the building is now rated below the required new building standard. The entire Naenae Pool facility including the Fitness Suite was then closed on 10 April 2019 after we received engineering advice that raised concerns about the building in the event of a significant earthquake.

    Repairing or replacing the pool is a top priority. We are working with urgency to develop three options for Councillors and the community to consider:

    1. Strengthen and fix current Naenae Pool facility
    2. Build a new pool...

    In July 2019 we will ask for public engagement on the possible options.

    Our Long Term Plan includes the development of a new Community Hub in Naenae. After consultation with the community, the following requirements were confirmed:

    A 1900m2 facility with many features that are important to the Naenae community including:

    A large space for sports/activities, concerts and cultural activities and large conferences

    • Medium sized spaces with hard and soft floor surfaces for recreation, classes, events, arts programmes and other community activities
    • Smaller spaces for community meetings (e.g. Plunket groups)
    • Naenae Library which will have a new layout reflecting the latest in designs for modern libraries and offering a range...

    • Smaller spaces for community meetings (e.g. Plunket groups)
    • Naenae Library which will have a new layout reflecting the latest in designs for modern libraries and offering a range of interconnected spaces providing areas for people to learn, create, explore, reflect and socialise
    • Naenae Clubhouse with a cutting-edge technology suite providing greater community access to digital mediums

    In February 2018 we completed the procurement process for the lead architect and principal construction company, and Hawkins (construction company) and Designgroup Stapleton Elliott (DGSE) (architectural company) were appointed to lead the project. A Community Panel was also appointed to lead community engagement in the design phase.

    With the closing of the pool we are taking a short pause to talk over the options for both of these projects and the concept design in terms of linking any new building to a new pool building.

    Hall

    There was a plan to demolish the Community Hall as part of the Hub development, which has been put on hold. The Hall has structural issues and a fence has been erected around it in the meantime.

    Library

    In March/April 2018 we ran community engagement on ideas for the current library site, once the library has been integrated into the Hub. This work has also been put on hold.

    Recently we asked for your feedback about replacing the popular Naenae Park Playground. Your ideas have helped us create a play space that will make this community asset even better. The plans will be displayed at the playground and have been shared on HCC Facebook and website. The new playground should be completed by the end of August.

    Making improvements to Barton Grove Reserve is another important project led by our Parks and Recreation team. We received great ideas through our recent community engagement. We will be building a new cycling and walking circular path which will link the entrances to the reserve.

    There will also be a natural play area, new park benches and tree plantings to enhance this space. The plans will be displayed in the reserve and shared on our website with the aim being to have all work completed over the next three months.
