Your chance to feedback

We are excited to be bringing you the first look of the new Naenae Pool and Fitness centre. Before we get into the detailed design and start construction we want to check-in with the people it’s being built for to ensure it’s delivering what they asked for.

This draft concept plan has been designed to reflect what the Naenae and wider Lower Hutt community and aquatic sports told us they wanted. It also reflects local culture and heritage and has been designed to support the revitalisation of Naenae’s town centre.

The positioning of the pool facility within Walter Mildenhall Park will help support greater safety, flow through to Hillary Court and access to public transport. The plan is to locate the pool facility on the central-western end of Walter Mildenhall Park. This opens pedestrian access through to Hillary Court, means the pool and park users will be in the sun throughout the day, improves safety by providing visible and safe access to the town-centre and creates a more open public space in the rest of the park.

It is important budget is closely managed and this plan has been carefully considered so we know what we are proposing is what we can afford to deliver. We have all experienced the challenges arising from the Covid pandemic. This concept design fits with the budget and we have worked hard to include all we can, including the needs of the aquatic sports users groups. We are being careful to plan for these likely cost increases and so we have made sure to prioritise what is really important in the design.

Demolition has begun and next steps will be foundation work, with construction beginning next year.

On the tabs below is a brief questionnaire and also space where our younger residents can upload their pictures of what they would like in the play pool spaces.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded. Thank you to all those who took the time to give us feedback on the draft plans. We will be back in contact when we have final plans share.

    The draft design for the new Naenae Pool and Fitness Suite outlines the proposed floor plan of the new complex and the different activities you could do in the facility. We are excited to get to this stage and want to share the draft plan with you to get your views on what is proposed.   We want to ensure the plan reflects what you have told us you want and need from the facility.  

    Below are a selection of artist images, the proposed floorplan and outline of where the pool complex will sit within Walter Mildenhall Park.  Taking the time to provide feedback will help the council and design team make the final decisions to deliver the best facility we can for Naenae and the wider community. 

    The feedback you provide will be confidential to the project team. Responses will be grouped for the purposes of reporting so that no individual is identifiable. The collection of this data is in line with the Privacy Act 2020. To read more about how Council manages data please read our Privacy Statement.
