New amenity building for Pauanui

New amenity building for Pauanui

After a decade of planning, the Pauanui Amenity Building is about to become a reality.

The location for the purpose-built GJ Gardiner building is in the middle of the Pauanui CBD. Construction is due to start at the end of July, with completion in early summer depending on the weather.

The amenity building will house the Community Library, information centre and a community meeting room. Tairua-Pauanui community Board Chair, Bob Renton is pleased the long and sometimes frustrating process is now behind them and that the building will be open to the public by Christmas.

"On behalf of the Community Board, I have to thank a number of people, especially Ken Bush - a local Pauanui builder, who has provided hundreds of his own hours on this project," said Mr Renton. "Thanks also to the Tairua-Pauanui Community Board and to all the staff at the Council for all the hard work and dedication in making this project a reality."

The traditional sod turning ceremony will take place at the site on 23 July at 10:00am.
