Civic Facility Development

Bringing performance space, library services, archives and front desk staff together in one place to create a community space that is welcoming to everyone.

Waipoua Bridge

A new walking and cycle bridge across the Waipoua River will provide easy access to Oxford Street Reserve from the trail on the south side of the river.

Hood Aerodrome

Funding from Central Government means we are now working on major improvements to Hood Aerodrome including key safety updates upgraded lighting and runway extensions.

Masterton Revamp

Following the Long Term Plan consultation, the refresh of our town entrances and our central business district has been deferred for three years.


Through funding from the Provincial Growth Unit, we have secured over $1 million to completely revamp the skatepark.

Water Meters

Water meters are being installed across the Masterton District to help us measure water use and detect leaks.

Mataikona Road Project

Masterton District Council is working with roading engineering company Stantec to develop long-term options for the Mataikona Road.

What’s Ahead?

We have some exciting projects in the pipeline:

Waipoua Bridge

This project will provide a fully accessible loop, close to town and Queen Elizabeth Park where any walkers or Wheeled user (pushchairs, wheelchairs, mobility scooters, toddlers on bikes) and cyclists could complete a short loop of the river, or go further to Colombo Road or Henley lake.

Animal Shelter

Work has begun to create a pound that is up to the latest standards and provides a safe home away from home for any wandering animals. We have approved concept designs for the animal shelter which are now going through a quantity surveying process.

Completed Projects

Below are some of the projects we have completed that you will be able to see and enjoy when you’re out and about in Masterton.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Queen Elizabeth Park

A major upgrade of the park along Memorial Drive and the Lake of Remembrance was undertaken in five stages in order to improve overall accessibility around the lake, increase separation between pedestrian and vehicle activity, soften the lake edge and provide better park furniture such as seating and tables.

At the same time the Queen Elizabeth Park Grandstand Project was completed with a full refurbishment including new changing and ablutions facilities, earthquake strengthening and a new roof.

Library Learning Centre

Library Learning Centre

The Library Learning Centre – Te Puna Ako was created on a vacant site next to the library as an extension of the existing library constructed from three relocatable buildings. It enables more people to take part in popular programmes such as coding, lego and Minecraft groups and support the introduction of new programmes.

This project is a temporary way to expand the space available for the library while a new library and archive is built along with our new civic facility.
