What’s proposed?
An extension to Selwyn Aquatic Centre including:

  • New programme pool – 25 metre, 8 lane $9.3m

  • Café with outdoor courtyard $1.1m

  • Fitness/wellbeing space $1.6m

Since opening in 2013 the Selwyn Aquatic Centre has become one of the district’s most popular recreation facilities, attracting users of all ages from throughout Selwyn and beyond. Due to continuing demand, however, the centre is struggling to accommodate all customer requirements

The Council is now proposing to build an additional 25-metre, 8-lane programme pool at the centre. The new pool will be multi-purpose, accommodating swimming lessons, aquafitness and casual swimmers. In response to recent consultation on additional facilities, the project would also include a fitness programming space and a café. Detailed design and construction would begin this year, and be completed in 2019.

How will this be funded?

The proposed extensions are estimated to cost a total of $12 million. The cost of the project will be funded by borrowing, repaid by an increase in the swimming pools targeted rate as follows:


Targeted rate 2017/18
Proposed targeted rate 2018/19
Zone 1 (Rolleston)
$124
$174
Zone 2 (inner district)
$87
$122
Zone 3 (outer district)
$31
$43

Do you support the proposal to proceed with extensions to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre?
