Community Facilities & Libraries

The Council is investigating options to provide a new community space in Pegasus, and future library space in either Ravenswood or Pegasus. To help determine the best options for the provision of these facilities, we want to hear from you.

A short survey has been developed and your feedback will help us to plan and budget for these facilities, which will cater for the anticipated future growth in these areas, including Woodend.

Catering for future growth

The projected population growth in the district is expected to grow to nearly 97,000 by 2048. Rangiora is projected to have the biggest growth at 31%, and the next biggest growth areas is Pegasus and Ravenswood. With the adjacent area of Woodend, these areas will account for 12% of the district’s total population, and we want to ensure that adequate facilities are provided to service this growing community.

The option to investigate a new community facility at Woodend/Pegasus was included in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan and was formally adopted by Council in June 2018.

Tell us what you think

Feedback received from this survey will help determine the best option for addressing the need for community spaces and also determining the best option for providing library and information services for the Woodend, Ravenswood and Pegasus communities.
