Funding for a new, single-story community centre has been approved for Pukete Neighbourhood House. We’ve consulted with the community on our initial proposal to build the community centre in Ashurst Park, by Ashurst Avenue.
We heard a range of feedback from 282 written submissions, and we are now exploring options for the building location.
You can see the options below, and the pros and cons of each. Please note that any feedback received at the information session on 13 November is not recorded below. This feedback will be incorporated into the final report, which will go to the Council meeting on 14 December.
2023-2024Consultation with the community is underway – we're proposing to reclassify a section of Ashurst Park to accommodate the build of the new facility.
2024Construction is expected to begin mid-2024.
2025The Pukete Neighbourhood House is expected to open mid-2025.
On 4 December 2023, planned works will begin to upgrade the flooring in the sports hall, and the changing rooms and toilets at the Sportsdrome. Please note this work is unrelated to Pukete Neighbourhood House and has no impact on the decision Elected Members will make about its location on 14 December. Contact us if you have any questions.
