Statement from Masterton Mayor Lyn Patterson:
The Masterton community will help decide the future of Masterton’s Town Hall in a formal consultation planned for later this year.
Masterton District Council has laid out its biggest challenges in a report to inform discussion ahead of the local government election in October.
Masterton District Council has a unique offer available; the lease of Coronation Hall within our historic Queen Elizabeth Park. The building is currently configured for a cafe or restaurant, however Masterton District Council may consider use for other activities that comply with Council’s strategic community goals and heritage precinct requirements.
Masterton District Council will prioritise a rejuvenation of Park Street after engagement with businesses across the town centre.
