Amberfield masterplan unveiled to the community
Over 200 people turned out on Wednesday night to get a glimpse into the future of the new Amberfield community planned for the south of Hamilton.
The public information evening held at the Glenview centre is the first reveal of the masterplan details for the mixed-use development on a 105-hectare site bordering the Waikato River to the east of Peacockes Rd.
As part of the site’s transformation, over 850 sections are planned over the next 7-10 years together with 23 hectares of open spaces and reserves, a neighbourhood centre and an esplanade reserve along the 2.8km river frontage that will include cycling and walking paths.
Amberfield spokesman Andrew Duncan says the evening was a great success with significant interest by local Hamiltonians.
“From young families to neighbouring residents, it was great to engage with a cross section of the local community. There was much interest in transport, environment and open space network which the team of consultants were able to provide insights on.
“There’s certainly a lot of excitement for the transformation of the site as we look to create a neighbourhood for the future of Hamilton.”
Resource consent and masterplan for Amberfield is due to be lodged later next month.
