Link­ing leases to en­gage­ment

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Sports clubs should have their pep­per­corn rent in­creased un­less they en­gage with young peo­ple, Porirua city coun­cil­lor Ken Dou­glas said last week. He raised the is­sue when the coun­cil was re­view­ing the leases of West­ern Sub­urbs Soc­cer and Porirua Row­ing clubs. The clubs pay $212 a year plus GST for their premises, which are sub­ject to three-yearly re­views. Some Porirua sports clubs, not nec­es­sar­ily the two in ques­tion, did not en­gage with young peo­ple at all, Mr Dou­glas said. Both sports clubs’ leases were re­newed.
