Christchurch City Council has approved the concept designs for the new Hornby Centre planned fort the east side of Kyle Park.
The council is investing $35.7 million into the multi-use centre to meet the community and recreational needs of the growing population living in the southwest of Christchurch.
“The new Hornby Centre will be an important asset for the community and will help plug a gap in our network of community and recreation facilities across the city,’’ mayor Lianne Dalziel said.
“The Hornby community have been pushing for many years for this type of facility, and I am delighted that we are a step closer to being able to give it to them.”
