Hutt Park Redevelopment – Valley Indoor Sports to move next year.

Last week Hutt City Councillors approved issuing a lease of up to 33 years for land on the Eastern fringe of the Park so that Valley Indoor Sports can build a 3000sq mtr stadium incorporating 6 courts.

Valley Indoor Sports has run the indoor stadium off State Hughway 2 in Petone for the last 17 years. Owner Graham Kelly says around 3000 people a week play netball, soceer or cricket at the current stadium. His son Leigh Kelly, now runs day to day operation. NZ Transport Agency owns the lease over the old building and while there is no pressure to leave the current site early, the aim is to open the new stadium at Hutt Park in July next year. The Kellys will still have to get resource consent for the new stadium. Parking is a major consideration but upon formalisation of site layout in development that may be abated.
