This morning the Tauranga City Council approved the following as part of the 2016/17 Annual Plan:

  • A) Fund the Papamoa Community Surf Rescue Base Trust a grant of $249,750 incrementally for project start up costs through the 2016/17 Annual Plan.
  •  B)  To support a grant of $950,000 as cornerstone funder for construction costs through the 2017/18 Annual Plan, subject to a business case and approved by Council

The Papamoa Community Surf Rescue Base Trust now has the support of the Council to progress the consenting and business case of a New Surf Rescue Base. We are also well positioned to engage other funding entities to make this project a reality.

The Trust would like to thank all of our supporters for letting the Council and other organisations know how important this project is for our community.
