Napier City Council wish to advise a change to a figure previously published relating to the Napier Aquatic Centre expansion options.

Council is currently seeking feedback from the community on which option is the best for Napier.

The first option, the Ivan Wilson Expansion, is a proposed extension to the existing facilities. The approximate cost per household is $12 per year. Previously it was stated as $63 per household per year.

NCC's Glenn Lucas: "Unfortunately we didn’t remove the costs associated with running the existing pool from Option 1. We have now corrected it and we apologise for the error."

Glenn Lucas, Manager Sport and Recreation, Napier City Council, says in order to come up with indicative figures for the informal engagement on the project, a number of calculations were applied. “Unfortunately we didn’t remove the costs associated with running the existing pool from Option 1. We have now corrected it and we apologise for the error. Engagement continues until the 18th of September and whatever option is the preferred option and mandated by Council will have rigid financial modelling applied to it before its inclusion in the Long Term Plan 2018-28 - which is when and how we formally consult.

So far, it's the 50-metre option leading the charge, but all bets are off! We are very much looking forward to seeing this project get off the ground," he says.
