A memo from the Waitematā Local Board to the Friends of the Leys Institute has outlined a path for the upgrading of the Leys Library and Gymnasium, which were closed in December 2019.
An indicative business case has confirmed the preferred option is to earthquake strengthen and refurbish the buildings to enable continued use as a community facility.
The Waitematā Local Board has endorsed the delivery of a detailed business case by July 2022, which will confirm the scope of work, levels of service provision, a more refined and accurate estimate of costs and identification of potential funding streams.
There will be ongoing engagement and communication with mana whenua, community and relevant stakeholders.
The buildings and surrounds will continue to receive maintenance and care while closed.
