Last few days for Draft West Town Belt Masterplan feedback
Hamilton residents and organisations have until Monday evening (27 May) to provide feedback on the Draft West Town Belt Masterplan.
The West Town Belt is a 54ha network of parks and open spaces on the edge of Hamilton’s city centre, and it originally formed a green buffer between the historic Hamilton and Frankton boroughs. It includes a range of parks, community facilities, Seddon Park, FMG Stadium Waikato, the historic Hamilton West Cemetery and a part of the Waitawhiriwhiri Gully.
In April, Hamilton City Council approved the Draft West Town Belt Masterplan to go out for consultation, and allowed a month for public feedback.
The Draft Masterplan includes a vision, goals and five key strategies to enhance the space, and breaks the West Town Belt into nine character areas which provide a focus for more specific potential developments and projects.
The potential projects are not currently funded, however the Masterplan would inform the Council and community on future decision-making.
An online portal – www.hamilton.govt.nz/westtownbelt - includes a downloadable version of the Masterplan, and a link to provide feedback via the Council’s Have Your Say channel.
Physical copies of the Masterplan, and a feedback document, are available at the Council’s Municipal Building in Civic Square, and the Central and St Andrews branches of Hamilton City Libraries.
