What's Planned

Much care and consideration has gone into the planning to ensure Amberfield will be a highly liveable and connected community.

With 23 hectares of open spaces and a carefully laid out roading and cycle path network, Amberfield will be a functional community where it’s easy to get around. The expansive site naturally divides itself into four distinctive neighbourhoods built around a commercial heart or neighbourhood centre.

A council planning for the future

The 720-ha Peacocke area, in which the Amberfield community will be located, is seen as a critical growth area for Hamilton. The Hamilton City Council expects to invest more than $290m there over the next ten years. Much of this investment will be in roading infrastructure such as a new bridge over the river as part of an extension to Wairere Drive. Find out more.
