Commitment to quality community facilities for local people

Well proven ‘lifestyle infrastructure’ such as leisure facilities, are an important component of a successful economic development strategy. BART supports the drive by the Buller District Council and the West Coast Development Trust to provide this quality community infrastructure for our local people.

These projects are outlined in the Council’s Long-Term and Annual Plans.
