The future use of Huia Street Reserve

We're proposing to change the land use at this city reserve to enable more homes to be built.

In November 2020, Council approved a preferred option for the future use of Huia Street Reserve: to enable the development of Huia Street Reserve for housing, including the potential for a mixed-use housing development supporting recreational and small-scale commercial activity.

The Council has directed the Chief Executive to engage with the relevant government agencies and the office of the Palmerston North Member of Parliament to initiate amendments to the Palmerston North Reserves Empowering Act 1966 to enable this change to occur.

The decision followed a formal consultation process. You can read our original proposal here, along with the feedback we received from the public:
