Consenting issues delay Go Zone’s opening day

Speculation has been rife this week about when the region’s long-proposed indoor playground will open.

Carterton District Council [CDC] confirmed yesterday that consenting issues have delayed Go Zone’s opening day – originally intended for the end of March.

A council spokesperson said CDC is “working very closely with Go Zone on a couple of matters of outstanding compliance in relation to the playground structure and the building”.

“While we understand most of the necessary work has been completed, the council has not yet received the final documentation required to issue consent in accordance with the New Zealand Building Code,” the spokesperson said.

It is the council’s responsibility to ensure that any members of the public could safely use the playground equipment, they said.

“We take this responsibility very seriously indeed.”

The council acknowledged residents across the region are “very keen” to see businesses like Go Zone in the community.

“We are doing everything we can to assist Go Zone in opening as soon as it is safe to do so. Like a lot of Wairarapa parents, we look forward to that day.”

Go Zone’s owners were contacted but declined to comment.
