Hamilton Urban Growth consultation

Posted 12 years, 2 months ago    0 comments

Check out Council's Proposed Hamilton Urban Growth Strategy - now currently available and open for public submission until 17 November 2008.

There are two more public meetings to be held on the proposed strategy.

o Thursday 30th October - 5.30 - 7.00pm
Melville High School, Collins Rd

o Monday 3rd November - 5.30 - 7.00pm
The Meteor, Cnr Victoria and Bridge St, City

The Hamilton Urban Growth Strategy is based on the concept of 'mend before you extend' and puts forward 4 key growth propositions:
* Facilitating a move towards more choices for compact living environments in the existing city - with a greater focus on quality
* In the short to medium term, recommitting to the development of Rototuna as the preferred residential growth cell, plus 900 sections in Rotokauri and 500 sections in Peacocke
* The transfer of Ruakura land from Waikato District Council to be used as an innovation/employment area rather than residential (from around 2016)
* In the longer term (beyond 2023) prioritising the development of the remainder of the Peacocke residential area.
