TJC Caretakers Residence 2017

2017 View: By Hamish Crimp

A permit was issued to the Taranaki Jockey Club in July 1918 for the construction of a caretakers cottage at the New Plymouth Racecourse - the builder/contractor R. L. Roberts, and the estimated construction cost was £800. It is likely that this permit relates to the construction of the present building at 1A Rogan Street, adjacent to the TSB Stadium carpark.

As the cottage was located on Pukekura Park land, at the August 1918 Monthly meeting of the Pukekura Park Board, "a resolution was passed giving effect to the board's decision to grant permission to the Taranaki Jockey Club to build a caretaker's residence upon the board's property".
