Multi-Use Sports Facility

Napier City Council has made the decision to withdraw a paper seeking a resolution of council as to whether to proceed to the next phase on the proposed Hawke's Bay Multi-Use Sports Facility.

A detailed business case on the proposed facility - peer-reviewed with the support of Sport New Zealand – was shared with Councillors and stakeholders at a seminar in February. The business case was withdrawn from public debate due to many councillors still having unanswered questions.

I think this is a complete waste of money! The cost to build such a specialised facility such as this is outrageous especially in light of the fact that there is no decent swimming pool in Napier, which would be far better used. It is clearly a hobby horse for the CEO and Mayor and if you put out to public consultation from the ratepayers who are actually funding it I am confident there would be a clear majority against it! I do not see this benefiting tourism and economic sectors sufficiently to justify the cost.

Sport New Zealand and Napier City Council are now working together on accessing the sporting body's latest research and analysis on the future growth of sporting codes. This evidence will be shared with Councillors to help ensure a well-justified decision is reached.

Mayor Dalton says making sure Napier has the right facilities to accommodate the current and future sporting desires of the Hawke's Bay community is central to his council’s investment decision.

Councillors will spend the coming months attending workshops on the Multi-Use Sports Facility, and further consultation with Sport New Zealand, as well as its regional arm, Sport Hawke's Bay, is planned. The paper is likely to be brought back to Council later this year for a decision on whether to proceed.

We are now asking you, the community, to tell us what you think of the proposed Multi-Use Sports Facility.
