Implementation of the plan is under- way, with funding allocated from its 2014/2015 discretionary budget to the following projects: ➤■ Athletics: $130,000 to the Pakura- nga Athletics Charitable Trust (PACT) towards construction of the pavillion at the 100-metre finish line of the ath- letics track at Lloyd Elsmore Park, on the condition that the funding will be released when PACT has secured the balance of the funds required to com- plete the pavilion project. Extension of a $100,000 Facility Partnership Grant from 2014/2015 was approved by the local board last June 15. ➤■ BMX toilet: $125,000 to the Moun- tain Raiders BMX Club for a toilet facility at Lloyd Elsmore Park to be owned by the club, including ongoing responsibility for maintenance and cleaning. Priorities for 2015/2016 are: ➤■ Football: Discussions with Ma- cleans College about the possibility of community access and use of the new artificial turf by Bucklands Beach AFC, 10 hours a week over 40 weeks of the year. ➤■ Gymsports: A feasibility study and business case for a new purpose-built building at Lloyd Elsmore Park with possible inclusion of martial arts, cheerleading and aerobics. ➤■ Netball: Investigate a joint venture with Pakuranga College to develop two indoor courts. If not feasible, then spatially plan to cover two courts at Lloyd Elsmore Park. The council says discussion is needed with Howick Pa- kuranga Netball Centre about its pre- ferred location for the investment. ➤■ Softball/squash: A feasibility study and business case for offices and a squash court at Meadowland Park, if required. If the documents are not required, then preparation of design plans, quantity survey, consents and project management would start for the planning of offices and squash court. ➤■ Waka Ama: A boat storage and wash down area at Tiraumea Drive Reserve. Boats will last longer if they are stored securely and would help the club get adequate insurance for boats and equipment. Recommended projects, 2015/2016- 2017/2018: ➤■ Tennis/Football: A joint Howick Tennis Club/Bucklands Beach AFC development at Howick Domain. This option is recommended if there is no support for a shared clubroom development at Macleans College. Bucklands Beach AFC has advised council staff that Howick Domain is not the club’s preferred location, rather it prefers to be based at Lloyd Elsmore Park. ➤■ Tennis: Convert a bowling green at Morrow Avenue Reserve to two tennis courts. One of two greens at Morrow Avenue Reserve is rarely used by the Bucklands Beach Bowling Club. Buck- lands Beach and Eastern Tennis Club have requested more courts. Further discussion is planned.
