Northern Arena says a planned swimming pool complex for Warkworth should be ready to open by about July 2023.
It is hoped construction can start soon after completion of the Matakana link road, due in May next year.
This will provide access to the site overlooking the Warkworth Showgrounds. Construction of the complex is expected to take about a year.
The complex will comprise a 25-metre pool, two smaller pools for children, a café and gym.
