Christchurch Council backs funding for New Brighton hot pools

Christchurch Council backs funding for New Brighton hot pools
July 12, 2017

Plans for the development of New Brighton’s hot pools have been backed by a Christchurch City Council decision to approve an additional $11.2 million to fund the project.

The funding has been included in the 2017/18 Annual Plan after public consultation saw more than 1000 submissions from the New Brighton community in support of the project.

The pools will be Christchurch’s latest attraction, and form a part of the New Brighton Regeneration Project, a programme of work to revitalise New Brighton being led by Development Christchurch Limited (DCL) and supported by the Council.

DCL Chief Executive Rob Hall says the decision to fund the hot pools is positive news for New Brighton, stating “(this) decision reinforces the Council’s commitment to New Brighton, and is integral to making New Brighton a great destination for Christchurch residents and visitors alike. The people of New Brighton have made it clear they are keen to see progress and today’s decision means we can keep pushing forward.”

Public feedback will be sought on the design of the hot pools, which is being undertaken by Select Evolution NZ, the designers of the Christchurch Adventure Park.

Concept designs will be made available to the public later this year and feedback will help refine the final design of the facility. Subject to resource and building consent, work is expected to begin early 2018.

Community ideas and feedback from local school pupils as also been sought to inform Select’s design for the New Brighton Beachside Playground. DCL will soon be releasing concept designs for the playground, and will be seeking community feedback to help refine the design.
