Community group leases - submissions closed

We’re intending to grant leases to various community groups around the District, to help provide a range of sporting and cultural activities.

Home » My Council » Public consultation » Past consultations » Community group leases - submissions closed

Submissions closed on Wednesday 10 April 2019. Thanks to everyone who submitted.

We received 3 public submissions (all were in support of the Tamaha Sea Scouts, Mapua). The leases have been approved by the Community Development Committee and the Golden Bay Community Board. 

We are now able to go ahead and grant leases. The leases will formalise existing locations/uses by the respective community groups. None of the intended leases involve a new activity by a community group.
