We seeking public feedback on its proposal to revoke the reserve status of the property situated at 583 Belvedere Road, Carrington, Carterton [“Belvedere Hall”].
Council is making this proposal, as the hall building is no longer fit for public purposes and requires a substantial upgrade. Other suitable meeting facilities are available in close proximity at West Taratahi and at Carterton.
Belvedere Hall has Reserve Act status under the Community Building Reserve Category. The Hall has no heritage value.
In May 2022 the Belvedere Public Hall Board ceased operating and the responsibility of the hall returned to Council.
At the May 2022 Ordinary Council Meeting, it was agreed to close the hall to the public until a decision could be made on the future of the hall, and that officers would undertake further research on Council’s options and obligations when considering the future of the Belvedere Hall.
Council has considered the options and concluded we would like to explore the options of disposal. The building needs a considerable amount of work and updating, which is not budgeted.
We are proposing to revoke the reserve status which will allow Council to dispose of the building and allow us to sell the land. We are asking you whether you agree with this proposal.
