Families play at a council event centre

The Council is planning a new community facility for Leeston and is now seeking feedback on possible ways
that it could be best utilised.

The Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP) process indicated a modern fit-for-purpose community facility
was required to meet the growing needs of the Leeston community. This led to Council adding the project to the LTP.

Open Space and Property manager Mark Rykers says the project is at its very early stages. Council is speaking
with the community to first understand what the needs of the community actually are. “In this first stage of public
feedback, we’re wanting to know the types of activities which people in the community see themselves doing
in the facility,” he says.

“This will give us a better idea of what kind of building could be built to accommodate those activities and how it
would be used.” “There will be plenty of opportunities to provide feedback on the facility, and we will have a formal
public consultation process when the project develops. I would like to thank the Leeston community for its positivity
and enthusiasm at this early stage of the project.”

Have your say Feedback closes at 5pm on Monday 6 May. For more information and to complete the feedback form
go to selwyn.govt.nz/newleestonfacility. Hardcopy feedback forms are available at the Leeston Library and Community Centre.
