“100% Concessionary Grants for Greytown Community Organisations”

Taking into consideration the need for certainty by Greytown Trust Land Trust’s tenants and a swell of community support for preserving the intention of land use, the Trust has agreed to apply a 100% rental concession to its legacy tenancies moving forward.

A sunset clause until June 2024 will be applied to enable sufficient time for the Trust to work with the tenants to ensure an enduring agreement that clearly articulates the intent of all the parties involved.

At recent meetings between the Trust and the tenants, the potential for a greater level of community use was discussed, which was something all parties saw value in and one that might facilitate some level of assistance from South Wairarapa District Council as part of the Long Term Plan process.

The Trust also recently granted $53,701 to four local education institutions. Kuranui College received $22,112 for its 2021 Inspire Time programme. Greytown Primary School received a grant of $21,322 for the relocation of its senior playground, the purchase of Kapa Haka uniforms and the school’s SHARP murals. Greytown Kindergarten will use $4,320 grant to buy four iPads and cases for its teaching team to use alongside the children. Greytown Early Years will fund its professional learning and development and the children’s Explorers programme with a $5,947 grant.
