KingsWay School has given the local board a heads up that it would like to install a covered outdoor playing area on its campus in Silverdale.
KingsWay Trust chief executive Warren Peat presented the concept to the Hibiscus & Bays Local Board at its meeting last month.
The cover, which is 10m high at its tallest point, is to go over existing astroturf so that the area can be used year-round for PE, training and sport.
The facility is within the college’s land, but the supports for the cover will be close to the boundary with Council-owned land.
The school is entering the resource consent process now.
Mr Peat says the college has limited ground space and an all weather astroturf will provide a much better amenity for a wide range of sports.
