Council & City

Bunnythorpe Community Centre

In early January 2021, construction began on a dedicated community centre for Bunnythorpe.

The centre, based on Raymond St, will have a 168sqm hall, a small meeting room, a kitchen, changing rooms and bathrooms.  It’s been designed in a way that will enable expansion in the future.  

This community centre will become increasingly important as its community grows, playing a pivotal role in bringing people together to build a stronger connected community.   

The construction contract has been awarded to Maycroft Construction, which has a strong presence in the Manawatū. Maycroft has committed to using local subcontractors during the construction wherever it is able.  

The existing sportsfield building will be demolished, and the new centre will sit on top of that site. The sportsfield will remain open throughout construction.

Construction is expected to be complete for an opening in late July.
