Basketball patch up possible

It looks likely that the public basketball court on Orewa Beach reserve will receive repairs to the surface, which are urgently needed.
Representatives of the Coast Streetball Community facebook group, Caitlin Watson and Sam Mills, told the local board in May that the surface is hazardous and has already caused accidents (HM June 3).
In response, Council staff told a local board workshop last month that it will present a recommendation to a board business meeting that seeks to repair the cracked and damaged surface, rather than fully renew it.
This is because Council is working on a plan for the whole reserve, which could impact the court. Staff said one possibility long term may be to re-locate the court to another park with more space.
