Become a thriving, urban environment
We’re creating a welcoming community village at the heart of Rototuna with flexible, inviting, connected, and usable spaces for everyone.
Rototuna Village will be home to a library with community rooms and Council services, a village square with power for events, play and skate spaces, and safe ways to move within the village. The village will be well-connected to the rest of Hamilton through safe roading, public transport options, and shared pathways.
We’re coordinating with private developers who will deliver office and retail in the future, and we’re supporting an investment proposal for a commercial pool and fitness centre with community access.
The north-east of Hamilton is growing and the neighbourhood needs community facilities to provide for its growing population.
2018Funding set aside for the development of the Rototuna community facilities.
April 2022Construction of Te Kete Aronui Rototuna Library and the outside public spaces is under way and will take around 15 months to complete.
Mid 2023Council's development of Rototuna Village community facilities is complete.
The next stage of the work is to build a new roundabout and upgrade North City Road to make it more pedestrian and cycling-friendly near the new community facilities.
To do this, we need to close part of North City Road between Fergy Place and Bourn Brook Avenue from early October 2022. This includes the intersection of Bourn Brook Avenue and North City Road as shown on the map. The intersection is expected to open by the end of July. North City Road will reopen by the end of August.
We expect most Council facilities in Rototuna Village to be available for public use mid-2023. The pool, retail and office spaces are subject to the developers’ schedules and will be complete some time afterwards.
Council has set aside $37.7 million for the works in Rototuna Village.
Yes. There will be some disruptions for people travelling through the area at certain points during construction. We’ll keep road and transport users up to date before work starts.
Public parking will be provided with mobility parking spaces planned in convenient locations throughout the village. A car park immediately north of the library is dedicated for people who have higher mobility needs, including parents using pushchairs and older persons. Parking restrictions will apply to most car parks following Council consultation on this.
We’re yet to decide on how parking will be managed within the village.
Yes. Bike parking will be provided throughout the village as it is developed.
Rototuna Village will be home to play and skate spaces, a basketball area, and potentially a swimming pool and fitness centre. The village is also right next to Korikori Park, which is home to several sports fields and changing rooms.
Council started engagement with the community in early 2019, which looked at options for what facilities should go where in the village. Further community engagement was undertaken on the design in late-2020.
