Fast Forward to 2028 - our growing and changing district

Selwyn now has the equal third largest population in the South Island after Christchurch and Dunedin – around 59,000 of us live here now, and we know Selwyn is the best place in our beautiful country to live. Our children grow up in a stunning environment, our rural heritage and economy are strong, and our towns are thriving places to gather and interact with one another.

Meeting the challenges of the next 10 years

All of us who live and work here rely on the infrastructure and services that our Council provides. To support our district into the future, we’ve prepared a comprehensive Long-Term Plan for the next 10 years – and we’re looking for your feedback.

A lot of what we do in the next decade will be the routine, but important, things that keep our district growing, attractive and safe – maintaining our roads, providing reserves, delivering safe drinking water, taking away your rubbish and wastewater, inviting you into our libraries, efficiently processing consents, and supporting new businesses to locate here.

In the next few years we focus on completing several landmark projects for Selwyn, including an exciting Rolleston Town Centre and a new Health Hub for our district, an extensive roading programme including connections to the Southern Motorway, and upgrades to our water networks.

Our Long-Term Plan also outlines new projects that we want your feedback on.

Engaging with the community

During the consultation period, from Wednesday 4 April to Friday 4 May, Councillors and council staff will be visiting events and locations throughout the district to discuss these proposals.

Make a formal submission.
