MOVED by Deputy Chairperson G Fryer, seconded by Member M Watson:

a)      receive the findings of an indicative business case for the redevelopment of Chamberlain Park which found:

i)       projected growth of 143,000 people (32.7 per cent) by 2036 in the Albert-Eden Local Board area leading to increased demand for new sport and recreation facilities.

ii)      changing demographics with a decrease in New Zealand Europeans from 48 per cent to 38 per cent and an increase in Asian people from 34 per cent to 41 per cent by 2038.

iii)     a gap in neighbourhood park provision in accordance with the Open Space Provision Policy.
