31 May 2017 - Proposal to consider a variation to the Lease Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated, Ngahue Reserve, 62-80 College Rd, St Johns (closing date: 30 June 2017) 


Auckland Council invites submissions or objections from persons or groups with an interest in Ngahue Reserve.

Ngahue Reserve is administered by Auckland Council and contains land parcels of varying status and ownership.  Most of the parcels are classified as recreation reserve under the Reserves Act 1977. Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated is to be granted a lease over portion of, or all of Part Allotment 365, District of Tamaki; Lot 12 DP357142, (CT’s NA89C/961 and 232459) (both subject to the Reserves Act 1977), and Lot 11 DP357142 (CT232458) held by Auckland Council in fee simple under the provisions of the Local Government Act 2002.

Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated currently occupies and is developing this area of Ngahue Reserve, pursuant to an Agreement to Lease dated 13 September 2013 and use of the artificial turfs is provided for under a Licence to Occupy dated 26 September 2015.  Both agreements were varied on 30 August 2016.

Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated has requested the Orakei Local Board consider varying the lease to:

a. Allow commercial activities to be conducted within the leased area
b. Allow third-parties to sub-lease portions of the leased area to conduct the commercial activities:
    i. physiotherapy and/or sports medicine rooms to maximum floor area of 75 square metres;
    ii. sports retail to maximum floor area of 50 square metres;
    iii. a gym to maximum floor area of 75 square metres;
    iv. a café to maximum floor area of 75 square metres; and/or
    v. office space (for a football related organisation) to maximum floor area of 240 square metres.
c. Vary the hours/end times previously allocated by Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated to Council from 9:00pm weekdays to 8:30pm weekdays.

In 2013 consultation was undertaken in respect of leasing the site to Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated.  At that time it was not intended that sub-leasing or commercial activities would occur within the leased area and public submissions were not requested in respect of these aspects of such uses.

Under Sections 54(1)(a), (b), (c) and (d) of the Reserves Act 1977, Auckland Council intends to consider the request by Oceania Football Confederation Incorporated to vary the lease to allow for the changes as outlined above.

Information and plans relating to the proposed changes to the lease arrangements may be obtained from Orakei Local Board Office, Meadowbank, or from Leigh Redshaw, Strategic Funding Advisor, phone 09 301 0101.  Information is also available on the public notice page on the Auckland Council website.

Any person wishing to comment or make a submission in respect of the above proposal is to lodge this in writing with Leigh Redshaw, Strategic Funding Advisor, Auckland Council, Private Bag 92300, Victoria Street West, Auckland 1142, by the close of business on Friday 30 June 2017. Please indicate if you wish to be heard in relation to your submission.  Alternatively, submissions may be emailed to Leigh Redshaw at:

Any information provided to the council will become subject to the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1977 and may be released by the council under that Act.  Any submitter should state in their submission if the whole or any part of the objection is to be kept confidential.
