Community Facilities Strategy


What is this about?

Council is taking some time to step back and think about how we will manage Community Facilities in the Manawatū District. This includes the following Community Facilities:

  • Recreation Complexes
  • Libraries
  • Arts and Cultural Facilities
  • Community Halls  
  • Social Service Facilities
  • Public Conveniences

The Draft Community Facilities Strategy seeks to provide a vision for the future of our community facilities and a roadmap on how we can get there.
