Parts of the 1928 Commercial St building only reach 16 to 26 per cent of the new building standards and council staff were shifted to temporary premises in Junction St last year. A Public buildings requiring earth- quake strengthening work which triggers a building consent current need to reach 67 per cent of the new building standards, although an imminent change to this by Government would bring it down to 34 per cent. In his report to councillors recently corporate services manager Mike Drummond said it was considered a better long term option to build a new service centre that met all the community and council needs, while taking advantage of the $390,000 Takaka Library insurance payout, rather than strengthening and refurbishing the old building. A requirement of receiving the insurance payout for the town’s library, which was destroyed by fire in November 2010, is that any new building have a commercial aspect. The budget would be around $1 million, he said. But Golden Bay councillor Paul Sangster urged his peers to consider staff proposal to demolish the district council’s Takaka service centre building and the alternative of constructing a multi-use building on the town’s current Information Centre site, at the head of the town. Paul said the council spend hun- dreds of thousands of dollars demolishing and cleaning up the site of the old building, which was a local historic building, before rebuilding on the site, which had no parking. He said the council owned the Information Centre site land and the road and gravel reserve land around it. He suggested a land swap could be negotiated with the adjoining farmer, the current Information Centre building removed and sold and a multi-use building erected to cater for the town’s information centre, service centre and have a commercial component which could be leased out. He said the old council service cen- tre, which sits on Crown-owned, land could be leased out or sold. But property services manager Jim Frater said the council’s lease with the Crown specified only the council occupy the building. If the council gave up the lease it was possible the site was landbanked or sold. Councillor Judene Edgar suggested the council establish a working party to consider all options of land and buildings, instruct staff to provide costs and plans and the party report back to the council in April. Councillors will walk the sites when they meet in Takaka on February 12.
