Masterton’s combined town hall and district building was closed in June 2016 due to having an earthquake rating below the required standard.
Since then we’ve done two rounds of consultation to understand what the Masterton District Community wants from a Town Hall or a Civic Centre. People told us they wanted Masterton District Council to build a new building.
This development is a result of that consultation and is based on the resolution passed by our elected members: “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.”
