Greenhithe Youth Facilities
Council has allocated funds in the 2010-2011 financial year for the development of a youth facility in the Greenhithe area.
It will be a local facility intended to service the local community
which will be reflected in the size and scale of the development.
It is envisaged that
the facility will be made up of a street skate area with a range of other
activities to cater to youth. The development will
be landscaped and planted to reflect the surrounding environment
and provide associated facilities such as seating and drinking fountains.
sites are currently being considered, these are Wainoni Park and
Collins Park. Council is currently undertaking a detailed investigation
of both sites
which includes an
assessment of the planning and consenting requirements for each site as well as the physical opportunities and constraints.
Once this has been completed then local residents will be invited to provide their input.
Council has also allocated funds for a regional youth facility at Hooten Reserve in Albany.
