Consultation has been completed on a plan for Rolleston’s development over the next twenty years.  The plan covers the development of the Rolleston Town Centre and Foster Recreation Park.

This project includes the following proposals:

  • Developing Tennyson Street as a two-sided shopping street which would become Rolleston’s main street. It would be home to a range of shops and would have benches and attractive tree planting
  • Developing a new library, community and technology centre which would include multi-use spaces which could be used for performances, events, exhibitions, meetings, a business hub, a youth space and a wide range of other activities
  • Creating a new Town Square is proposed as a meeting place for locals and visitors, and a place for holding events and staging performances
  • Enhancing Rolleston Reserve with a playground and water feature. The location of a new shopping area and the new library, community and technology centre, the Town Square and shopping along Tennyson Street would bring more people to this area and encourage people to visit the Reserve
  • Introducing landscaping and pedestrian crossings, traffic lights and on-street parking to Rolleston Drive
  • Developing Foster Recreation Park as the largest sport and recreation park in Selwyn.  The park will be able to be used by a range of sports codes for games and training, and by the community for walking and cycling, recreation and community events. The park will also include a children’s play area.
