Have Your Say on Netball and Indoor Sports Facilities in Wairarapa

Wairarapa residents are being given the opportunity to have their say about the future of netball and other indoor sports facilities in the region, as part of a major feasibility study.

Following the completion of the Masterton Sports Facilities Plan, Netball Wairarapa and Masterton District Council have joined with other stakeholders to investigate the feasibility of a netball and indoor sports facility to cater for the wider Wairarapa netball and indoor sports needs. Opus International Consultants have been commissioned by Masterton District Council and Netball Wairarapa to undertake this study.

Community consultation will play an important role in understanding the current suitability and accessibility of all council-owned, school-owned and privately-owned court facilities in the Wairarapa region. It will also help with establishing whether or not a new facility is feasible.

There are two ways in which people can give their views as part of the consultative process. Firstly, they can complete a copy of the questionnaire which is available at council offices throughout the Wairarapa and online below. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and responses are required no later than 20th April.

In addition, there is a programme of public ‘drop-in’ sessions planned, which are designed to enable the community to meet with representatives of Opus and discuss the current and future provision of facilities. There are four sessions in total, taking place at the following times:

Tuesday 7th April, Masterton Town Hall, 12pm-2pm and 5:30pm-7:30pm
Wednesday 8th April, Greytown Town Centre, 12pm-2pm and 5:30pm-7:30pm

There is no need to book in advance to attend one of these sessions and everyone is welcome.

Further information regarding the consultation can be obtained by emailing [email protected].
