That the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board:

a)      endorse the draft Increasing Aucklanders’ participation in sport: Investment Plan 2019-2039 in principle for new facilities

 b)      provide the following feedback for consideration of the Environment and Community Committee:

i)       there is an increasing need for more sports facilities in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area due to significant current and projected growth both within the local board area and in the adjacent Rodney Local Board area (where communities will naturally travel to the closest facilities in Hibiscus and Bays regardless of local board boundaries)

ii)      current and future needs cannot be addressed with current facilities, due to a significant historic under-investment in sports facilities

iii)     the emphasis on multisport facilities to cater for future sporting needs is supported, noting that:

A)       there are currently no multisport facilities in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area

B)       the local board strongly supports community-led planning for multisport facilities at Metro Park East and at Freyberg Park

 

c)      support efforts to reduce the burden on the ratepayers to pay for facilities, including investigating the use of sport facilities (or parts of them) for commercial enterprises to contribute to the cost of operating the facilities

d)      support the principle of equity when weighing investment decisions

e)      express concern that the analysis of public submissions on the draft Increasing Aucklanders’ participation in sport: Investment Plan 2019-2039 was not provided to enable the local board to hear it’s community’s views

f)       express concern that local board views and knowledge do not seem to be taken into account when assessing needs for replacement facilities to meet current and future growth

g)      reserve the right to give further feedback once a snapshot of the views of  local sports groups and wider community has been received

h)      delegate authority to local board members Mike Williamson, Caitlin Watson, Chris Bettany and Julia Parfitt  to provide feedback on behalf of the local board, once this further information is provided, if required.
