Community Hall funding has been allocated by Franklin Local Board.
The board supports 19 rural hall committees to deliver community places services, spending about $190,000.
In 2020 it resolved to base funding on five-year operational plans, adopting a phased approach for developing the plans in four lots.
Board Chair Andy Baker says staff have worked with nine hall committees in the first two stages, taking cost projections and the committees’ visions and objectives into account.
“This is complex and challenging for hall committees as we are try to improve equity across the committee-managed halls while working with them to help guide future investment.”

- Glenbrook War Memorial $8700
