Auckland Council increases support for access to sporting facilities

Earlier in May, I was part of the Environment and Community committee which voted to increase council’s support for community access to the ASB stadium via the East City Community Trust to $90,000 per annum, an increase of $10,000.

The same meeting also endorsed the continuing support for the Auckland Netball Centre in St Johns with a grant of $150,000 per year for community access and participation .

This spending ensures that the community has access to indoor sports facilities to fill the geographic gap where council does not have its own facilities available for public use.
