Civic Centre Development
Combined town hall and district building
We asked for your feedback again in early 2018 and proposed three options:
- Build a new facility
- Strengthen the existing building
- Not replace the town hall.
The majority of those that responded during our Long-Term Plan consultation said they wanted to see the town hall replaced. As a result of the consultation Masterton District Council decided:
“to proceed with building a new civic centre. Future work will be undertaken regarding what this will look like and the location. This will include considering options on the current site and options to retain the existing façade with the replacement of the current town hall. Further consultation will be undertaken on the final proposal.”
The term civic centre simply means a large public building or complex for meetings, sports or entertainment. When our town hall closed we lost an important community asset. We want our community to have facilities they enjoy – places that bring people from across our diverse community together.
A versatile multi-use facility presents a range of opportunities for our community, including bringing more people to our district for key events.
