The statutory clock for building consents stops on 20 December 2022 and restarts on 11 January 2023, however we will continue to accept and process consents whilst open.
Support our new community facility and make the Waitaki District proud!
More than just a Sports Stadium, Waitaki Event Centre will provide the entire community with a place to come together with facilities for Club meetings, Performances, Conferences, Sports and activities for all ages.
The Waitaki District Council has committed up to $10 million towards the project, as well as other regional businesses.
Doug and Donna Hurst have generously pledged to match every dollar given to the project by local families and businesses, up to $5 million, to help create a "wonderful legacy for the community".
We are optimistic the $5 million could be matched - "plus more" - by November, which would keep the project on track for a 2024 opening.
A project of this magnitude would be an excellent way of securing employment, supporting local business and, equally importantly, would provide all our residents with a sense of actually doing something positive, in these times of negativity, for our district.
