A bit of good news for Lit­tle Theatre

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Delays in at­tract­ing in­vest­ment to a planned busi­ness hub in Lyd­ney Pl mean Porirua Lit­tle Theatre has a home for the rest of this year.

Since Oc­to­ber the troupe has been based at 4 Lyd­ney Pl, the old Pete’s Emporium Build­ing. Its lease was first due to ex­pire last De­cem­ber 31, but was ex­tended un­til July 31. Porirua City Coun­cil has now ex­tended its stay again, till De­cem­ber 31.

The coun­cil in­tends to trans­form 4 Lyd­ney Pl into a two­s­torey BizHub, where busi­ness peo­ple can en­ter­tain clients.

How­ever, at­tract­ing in­vest­ment to the cen­tre had proved slower than an­tic­i­pated, the coun­cil’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions and mar­ket­ing man­ager Bar­bara Ber­cic said.

‘‘ With­out any firm agree­ments for the BizHub in place, it was agreed to of­fer the lease ex­ten­sion to Porirua Lit­tle Theatre for a fur­ther six months.’’

Bizhub part­ners on board are Porirua City Coun­cil, Porirua Cham­ber of Com­merce, Whi­tireia and Massey Univer­sity.
