Featherston Town Square Official Opening 1 October 2016

Featherston Town Square

South Wairarapa District Council (SWDC) is pleased to announce that the official opening of the Featherston Town Square will be on Saturday 1 October (further details to come).


In May 2014 SWDC sent 1200 forms to urban and rural residents asking for their feedback regarding the use of the recently acquired land on Main Street in Featherston. Of the 159 respondents, 74 were in support of developing at least part of this area into a town square and provided ideas for the placement of the MENZ shed.

After reviewing all responses, SWDC created a working group (made up of councillors and community board members) to develop the design of the town square.

A landscape designer was retained to discuss design concepts with the Featherston Town Centre working group and drawings were developed following these discussions.  These concept drawings can be seen on the SWDC website.

The new town square will be a lovely space for Featherston residents to enjoy.
