Part of Masterton District Council’s role is to enable democratic local decision-making in the local community – it means we set the strategic direction for the district in partnership with the local community. To do that we often need to hear your thoughts on key projects or potential changes we’re considering.

Hood Aerodrome Masterplanning
Masterton District Council plans to spend $17 million on developing Hood Aerodrome – including $10 million provided by the Government. The Hood Aerodrome upgrade project includes work to widen and extend the runway, including road realignments, lighting, electrical, water and wastewater upgrades, and additional security. Some of this work has already been completed, and we are now developing a masterplan for Hood Aerodrome to ensure it meets the needs of users and the wider community for at least the next 20 years.
We want to develop an agreed masterplan that allows future developments be planned with confidence. Development of the masterplan provides an opportunity to incorporate input from the community and other stakeholders before detailed design work starts.
