Work on new aquatic facility can continue

Artists impression

Napier City Council is pleased to have come to an Interim relief position that has been endorsed by the  Court that will enable some scheduled work on the new aquatic facility as planned, which will be built on the corner of Tamatea and Prebensen Drive.

This means that work can continue with the resource consent process, preloading earthworks on site and the evaluation of tenders received and acceptance of the preferred tenderer by Council.  Any final award of the contract will await final outcome from the High Court hearing that will commence on 30 September. The tender process closed earlier in July.  

NCC's Wayne Jack: "Construction costs are increasing at a rate of $3000 to $4,000 per day. Being able to continue while we await the 30 September court hearing ensures valuable time and cost savings."

Napier City Council CEO Wayne Jack says “Construction costs are increasing at a rate of $3000 to $4,000 per day. Being able to continue while we await the 30 September court hearing ensures valuable time and cost savings.

"We know that current demand for aquatic facilities is out-stripping supply. That’s why our plans for the new complex include a Learn to Swim Pool that is larger than the Ivan Wilson Pool. We have given careful thought to the flexibility of all pools. This means we can use each pool for different purposes, in response to the community’s needs. We’ll be able to teach more Napier people to be safe, confident and have fun in the water."
