Corrections to the Draft Structure Plan.


Rolleston is growing so fast that it is in danger of becoming an uncoordinated sprawl.

This Plan will say when, where and what types of growth will be allowed up to 2041. It will also suggest appropriate urban design ideas and will identify:

  • Town centre options

  • Density of housing options

  • Potential community facilities

  • Roading, cycling and pedestrian networks

  • Open spaces, recreational areas and

  • Constraints on water and wastewater servicing.
