Community Facilities Trust
The trust is a new initiative by Hutt City Council and will work with the Council to help fund and deliver on Council’s integrated facilities plan and investment programme. The trust will play a key role in designing new community and recreational facilities in Hutt City and sourcing funding for their development from philanthropic and community funding organisations.

The trust will own the facilities once completed.
The trustee positions are unremunerated. However, they offer candidates a unique opportunity to improve the lives and prospects for many in our community by helping shape the community and recreation facilities and services provided in Hutt City, leaving a legacy for future generations to enjoy.
