ŌHAUPŌ SPORT AND RECREATION

CENTRE

Council is keen to grant $500,000 towards a new sport and recreation centre at Ōhaupō. However, in response to community feedback, will do further investigation and consultation with the community over the next year as to how the contribution will be funded.

OUR PLAN FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS

In September last year (2017), Council was asked to part-fund a new Ōhaupō Community Sport and Recreation Centre. This is a community-led project aims to create a central facility for a variety of community and recreation activities.

The facility will be in a similar location to the existing Ōhaupō rugby clubrooms and include the following facilities:

  • open hall / community space
  • separate clubroom facilities
  • kitchen and bar facilities
  • changing room facilities
  • community gymnasium.

This project has been driven by a steering group formed for the project. The group includes representatives of both the Ōhaupō Rugby and Sports Club, other community groups and the wider community.

Council supports the project and Council is keen to grant $500,000 towards a new sport and recreation centre at Ōhaupō. However, in response to community feedback, will do further investigation and consultation with the community over the next year as to how the contribution will be funded.

The decision to support the development of the sport and recreation centre has not impacted any decision around the future of the Ōhaupō War Memorial Hall.
