A small but significant win for Whatawhata and the Newcastle ward.
Earlier today, Council staff recommended to the Councils Policy Committee that Council donate surplus playground equipment from the merging of two playgrounds at the Point, Ngaruawahia to a private enterprise. Most of the equipment was no longer compliant with the NZ Playground equipment standards but several pieces of equipment still complied.
Councillor Noel Smith, Councillor for the Newcastle ward that includes Whatawhata, challenged the staff recommendation and pointed out that the Whatawhata community had no public playground and under the Council’s playground strategy was not due to get a playground until 2033. He challenged his fellow Councillors to consider the ratepayers of the district ahead of a private organisation. He asked that Whatawhata be given the opportunity to inspect and utilise the equipment. After some impassioned discussions Councillors supported Councillor Smith’s request and Whatawhata is to be offered the opportunity to utilise the compliant equipment.
Glenn McLennan, Chairman of the Whatawhata Residents & Ratepayers Association, Councillor Smith and Council staff will inspect the equipment later this week to ensure the equipment is suitable. Councillor Smith stated, ‘While the equipment is not new, the Community has the opportunity to install some equipment while it waits for a new playground’. Councillors also asked staff to initiate a review of the playground strategy and if possible find ways to bring the programme forward so that smaller communities can get their playgrounds sooner.
