New fees and charges will be in place next year for some fitness and swimming classes and Council services following a review of prices.

From 1 January 2023 the majority of fees for the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, Selwyn Sports Centre and group fitness classes will increase by about 10%.

The change for most services, will be less than $1. General pool entry to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre will increase by .60c for an adult and by .30c for a child or preschooler. Casual entry for all other Council pools will remain unchanged. Casual entry for Group Fitness classes will increase by $1 for adults and .60 for Gold, Community Services and Hapai card holders.

These fees and charges are reviewed annually and it is the first time in five years that many of these charges have been changed, Head of Sport and Recreation, James Richmond says.

“Over the past 18 months we have faced increasing costs in running these services and facilities. We’ve worked really hard to keep all fee changes to a minimum while covering those increases and still find ourselves below many other councils charges nationally.”

User groups will be notified directly of fee changes for their services.
