A new Hornby library, customer services, and recreation and sport centre is planned for the growing south-west community.

Vision for the new Hornby Library, Customer Services, South West Leisure Centre

With more than 12,000 new homes expected in Christchurch’s south-west by 2044, the Council has approved a $35.7 million budget for facilities to serve the growing population. It's hoped to begin construction in early 2021, for a late 2022 opening.

Update: 24 July 2019

Before design of the Hornby facility begins, we're looking for your thoughts on what features we should include in the building.

We’ll definitely include a multi-purpose lane pool, a learn to swim pool, a toddlers' wet play area, a customer services area and the main library space – but the $35.7 million budget can accommodate other features as well.

That’s where you come in. Have your say online and find out about drop-in sessions here.(external link) Engagement closes Monday 12 August.
