Supporting, empowering and strengthening the wellbeing of those who live in Flaxmere has been a council focus for the past 10 years, and we’re starting to see some amazing results now.

Over the past decade there’s been some major upgrades to facilities in Flaxmere. This has included the complete rebuild of the playground in the award-winning Flaxmere Park, followed by a refresh three years ago, and upgrades of the swimming pool complex, community centre and two smaller playgrounds.

The Ministry of Education rebuild of both Flaxmere College and Te Kura o Kimi Ora are other examples of the positive investment that is going into the suburb. In support, Council financially assisted with the development of the shared community and school playground at Kimi Ora.

Currently, council is focused on supporting these initiatives, as well as more recent ones to provide much needed, warm, safe, well-designed homes in the face of the current housing shortage.

Alongside this there’s exciting developments underway such as a major upgrade of the skate plaza, and the national trial of the Hoops in Parks programme in conjunction with Basketball New Zealand, Basketball Hawke’s Bay and Sport Hawke’s Bay.

And, a brand new New World supermarket is also planned to be built – providing jobs and shopper choice – anticipated to be up and running in 2024.
