Horowhenua Council is undergoing an exciting period of growth as it becomes more accessible to live and work in the Horowhenua with significant roading projects that will bring it far closer to Wellington. At this exciting time HDC is looking to future-proof its facilities for the anticipated growth which is already happening.
This RFP is crucial in enabling Horowhenua District Council to go from Good to Great and develop the area as a destination for residents and visitors. Council is as a result looking for an innovative, well-qualified consultant to assist it in meeting its aspirations for the community. The work will require the successful proponent to carry out a feasibility study and develop an Aquatic / Recreational Strategy on behalf of Horowhenua District Council.
It is intended that the feasibility study will inform HDC’s future strategy and investment decisions regarding the long term growth of its aquatic and recreation facilities within the District. This will be achieved through the study by:
• Analysing population growth and demographic projections over the next 20 years, together with the opportunities that this growth presents.
• Community wide engagement to understand the needs of our community now and in the future (and what the community doesn’t need).
• Consideration of current and future trends in aquatic and recreation facility participation.
• Understanding what is available in our neighbouring districts, and in districts of comparable size to Horowhenua.
• Identifying gaps, duplications and redundant facilities
• Investigating a range of ownership and delivery methods including opportunities for partnership and shared facility models
For the purpose of this study, ‘recreational facilities’ include aquatics facilities, plus connected complimentary recreational offerings such as multi-purpose courts and sports fields; health, rehabilitation and fitness facilities (such as gyms); fitness classes; and spa / sauna facilities. A ‘community recreation hub’ approach is likely to also include bookable community spaces; leased space for recreational organisations; and, a café with attached community meeting areas.
