Taradale Community Pool Trust  - Brendon Rope and David Trim

Mr Rope and Mr Trim provided an update to Council on the project underway to repair the roof support and cladding for the pool, as well as the changes made to the governance of the facility. The Trust will maintain the asset, which will be operationally managed by Youthtown, as reputable national organisation who specialise in programmed activities. The Trust are seeking $500K in funding form Council.

In response to questions from Councillors it was advised that the trust had not submitted under the Long term Plan process as they were waiting on approval from the Ministry of Education as well as confirmation of some project planning.

The Swim to Survive programme would be offered through schools and the Learn to Swim programme would be available via bookings. The main focus of the pool would be programmed activities through Youthtown as opposed to general public access.

The Trust intends to go to tender in October; it was anticipated that any tenders received would provide a more specific outline of costs required which could then form the basis of further funding applications.

2.1   Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is to follow up on the seminar held with Council on 23 July 2018 regarding initiating a review of the District Plan and for Council to approve ‘in principle’ both the overall strategic direction for the review and the indicative overall process the review of the District Plan will follow.

 

At the Meeting

In response to questions from councillors it was clarified that:

·         The communications and engagement strategy for the District Plan will be brought to Council, including around the “Our House” concept

·         While the District Plan contains rules, it is also a strategic document which provides an overall guideline as to how the components of Napier interact with one another, and as such it has been brought to the Strategy and Infrastructure Committee at this stage in the project and not the Regulatory Committee 

 

Committee's recommendation

The Strategy and Infrastructure Committee:

a.     Resolve to formally initiate the review of the current District Plan.

b.     Endorse ‘in principle’ both the overall strategic direction for the review and the indicative overall process the review of the District Plan will follow.
