Connecting our Community

Bringing People Together in Town

Urban centres are about people. Bringing people together and creating space for them to enjoy. The way people use space and what people want from a town centre has changed, and will continue to change. We need to keep up.


Masterton District Council is embarking on a rejuvenation of our town centre. We need to make sure it attracts people – both Masterton residents and visitors – and delivers what they want.

Here you can find out about the background, plans and latest developments. We will be spending the Summer finding out what you think about civic centre project. There are loads of different ways to engage with us and share your thoughts on the future of our shared spaces.

Check out the options below and pick whichever works best for you and your whanau. This is one of the biggest decisions we’re going to make as a community so we encourage you to make sure your voice is heard.
