Have Your Say on Netball and Indoor Sports Facilities in
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
Wednesday 8th April, Greytown Town Centre, 12pm-2pm and
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].
