The Wanaka Sports Facility Steering Group began the
formidable task of collating the latest public feedback on the
project for the district's decision-makers this week.
To confirm the much-debated mix of facilities at the $16.8
million sports complex - which will be built at the Three
Parks/North Three Parks subdivision on the outskirts of
Wanaka - the Queenstown Lakes District Council had requested
updated information on the needs of potential users.
The steering group had its first chance to consolidate the
large volume of fresh feedback at a workshop on Wednesday,
after the most recent consultation phase closed the previous
''We had a good uptake from stakeholders and also ... over
200 personal responses through the [council] website.
''There was a late flurry last week,'' steering group
chairman Duncan Good said.
The group would prepare a recommendation for the council to
consider at its next meeting later this month.
