Our plans for the future

The Peacocke programme will deliver a new bridge, main roads, parks, and strategic water, wastewater and stormwater networks. Other work includes updating the District Plan, protecting and enhancing the environment, including the extensive gully system, and investigating community facilities which are also important parts of creating a new community in Peacocke.

Delivering these services for this community includes complex and expensive work across the next five to 10 years.

The map below shows the key projects which will be delivered over the first 10 years (2018/28) of Peacocke's development.

The initial infrastructure planning is largely complete, meaning progress has been steadily moving forward. Hamilton is leading the country in implementing the projects which receives Housing Infrastructure Fund support. The process of acquiring the pieces of land where the new roads and pipe network will go is underway. These areas of land have long been designated for the project through the Southern Links process, with enabling work already begun on the Wairere/Cobham Dr interchange.

Work has also started to secure consultants to help design the bridge and the northern part of Southern Links, as well as a new intersection on Ohaupo Road (SH3). District Plan changes are in the pipeline to ensure our planning rules are fit for purpose and will help create the best outcomes for the area.

The Council has already received subdivision consent applications for more than 850 homes in the area as developers get ready to build more homes for a growing city.
