Play on Park Now Open

Masterton District Council is embarking on a rejuvenation of our town centre.

Masterton Council to procure own roading contract

Masterton District Council has decided to procure its own roading services contract managed independently rather than pursuing a shared service across the three Wairarpa councils at this time.

Exciting start to 2019 for Masterton town centre

The new year will bring a new look for parts of Masterton’s town centre as the project to revamp public spaces continues.

MEDIA STATEMENT: Taratahi Institute of Agriculture

The three Wairarapa Mayors would like to acknowledge the gravity of the situation regarding the Taratahi Institute of Agriculture being placed into liquidation.

Collaborative model sought for parks contract

Masterton District Council is overhauling its parks and open spaces maintenance contract – moving to a collaborative model that leverages contractor expertise.

Summer working days and open hours, Masterton

It’s holiday season, and we thought it may be helpful for you to know working days and open hours for important facilities and services beforehand, including office hours for the council office, to help you with your planning this time of year.
