That the Rodney Local Board:

Kumeu Library

a)      note the findings of the Auckland Council North-west Community Facilities Provision Investigation, 2018 as follows:

i)       there are serious condition issues at Kumeu Library, and without intervention the library will close, creating a gap in the network.

Aquatic Provision

b)      note the findings of the north-west community facility provision investigation for aquatic provision as follows:

i)       there is a future gap in aquatic provision in the north-west from 2026

ii)      the key move to address the future aquatic gap in provision is a new aquatic facility (ideally located near Westgate in sub-catchment 3 of the study area)

iii)     the next steps to progress the future aquatic gap in aquatic is to commence the strategic case for change and the development of investment options to implement the Indicative Business Case approved through the Long-term Plan- 2018-2028.

Recreation and Leisure

c)      note the findings of the north-west community facility provision investigation for recreation and leisure provision as follows:

i)       there is a future gap in recreation and leisure provision in the north-west of at least four new indoor courts between 2026-2036

ii)      the key moves to address the future gap in recreation and leisure is the provision of one-to-two courts in the Rodney area by 2026 and at least two additional courts in the Massey/Upper Harbour part of the north-west by 2036

iii)     the next steps to progress the future gap in indoor court provision in the Rodney area and in the Massey/Upper Harbour area is to commence the strategic case for change and the development of investment options to implement the Indicative Business Case approved through the Long-term Plan 2018-2028.

Multipurpose Community Space

d)      note the findings of the north-west community facility provision investigation for provision of community space as follows:

i)       there is no current gap in multipurpose community space provision in the north-west, but one will emerge in future based on forecast population growth

ii)      the key moves to address this are additional multipurpose community space in Whenuapai from 2026 and Kumeu from 2036, subject to the impact of the new multipurpose facility in Westgate, the rate of growth across the area and the needs of emerging communities

iii)     the next step is to monitor population growth in the area and develop an Indicative Business Case when the population reaches 10,000.

e)      request that officers progress the local boards ‘one local iniatiative’ being the Huapai Indoor Local Court Facility as soon as possible to address the current shortfall in court facilities in the Huapai Kumeu area.
