The Golf Club and OBC are working in tandem with the Local Board and the Auckland Council’s property people to renew the leases for the Golf Course and the Community Centre.
This process commenced late 2016 and action is underway to achieve that outcome. Feedback from the Local board and Council officers has been both very supportive and encouraging.
The Council has advised that early this month as they are required to do, they consulted with Iwi.
The Council has also undertaken survey work to properly define the golf course area in the northern part of the golf course and a maintenance issue is being addressed in respect of the Community Centre. Both the Golf Club and the OBC expect that a satisfactory conclusion will be achieved by years end.
The Golf Club and OBC are aware of media reports regarding the future of Auckland Council golf courses. To date there has been no indication that the issues referred to in these reports will impact our negotiations. We will be watchful.
