As well as the projects included in our Annual Plan, Hutt City Council is exploring options for the site of the Naenae Library once it has relocated to the new Community Hub. We want to make sure its future use helps revitalise Hillary Court and the area around it.
We’ve been exploring
options and we believe housing would be a good option, as it could be
transformational and make Hillary Court safer, more vibrant, and more
attractive to businesses. It would also help with the city-wide housing
shortage, and could be designed to meet the needs of today’s Naenae residents.
You’ll see we’re also looking at housing as one option for the redevelopment of the Petone library for the same reason – an opportunity to provide much-needed safe and warm homes for current and future residents of Lower Hutt.
