4.   Consultation On The Location Of Library, Aquatic, Recreational And Customer Service Facilities In South West Christchurch January 2017

 

The Board considered a report regarding the location and configuration of Library, Leisure Centre, Community and Customer Service facilities in South West Christchurch and to make a recommendation to the Council to commence a community consultation and engagement process.

Staff in attendance spoke to the accompanying report and responded to questions from members.

The Board noted that the two projects are listed separately in the Council’s budgets.

While generally supportive of the staff recommendations, the Board agreed to highlight this particular aspect to the Council. Accordingly, a further recommendation from the Board (as below) has been added to the three recommendations from staff.

 

Staff Recommendations 

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board recommend that the Council:

1.         Approve the commencement of a community consultation and engagement process regarding options for the location of co-located (combined) Library, Leisure Centre, Community and Customer Service Facilities in South West Christchurch.

a.         Specific locations to be identified in community consultation include, Warren Park, Denton Park and Kyle Park.

b.         The consultation process will provide the community with the opportunity to offer alternative locations.

c.         The consultation process will provide the community with the opportunity to offer feedback on the co-location of facilities.

d.         The finalised consultation process will be signed off by the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board before it is launched.

2.         That the broad scope of facilities to be provided are consistent with the 2015/2025 Long Term Plan and the resources set aside in this document for this purpose.  However, within this broad envelope the community consultation process will seek community feedback on the form, function and nature of facilities that best meet the current and future needs and aspirations of the community.

3.         Note that in order that the overall capital programme that supports this project is affordable to the Council, an ongoing commitment to divest local property that is deemed to be surplus to requirements, is needed.
