Background

Over the next thirty years Stoke is expected to be home to three quarters of Nelson’s population growth and half its new housing. Council has recognised the need for appropriate facilities and services to support this growth forecast. After extensive consultation with the community, Council has approved plans for a new sports and community facility at Greenmeadows reserve, with an additional space that could be used as a cafe in the future.

Further projects which have been included in the Plan include discussions with the community on the future of Stoke Hall and how it can best fit with the new Greenmeadows facility; consultation, planning and physical works for a youth park; an extension to the Library and further improvements to parking and transport issues.
