Meadowbank Community Centre

Meadowbank is getting a new community centre. It will replace the current facility at 29 St Johns Road. We are designing the inside of the centre and want to ensure it will meet the needs of our community.


About the new community centre

This 570m2 community centre will be part of a new multi-use building. It will be located on the ground floor with residential apartments above.

We are creating a flexible, accessible facility that will cater to a range of community services and activities.

There will be no cost to ratepayers because we are building the new community centre on council-owned land and funding the project through already agreed asset sales and the apartments above.

The development is subject to resource consent for the multi-use building being granted. This is currently being processed.

The existing community centre will remain open until early to mid 2023, when the new build starts.


What we are proposing

Following specific consultation in 2017 and earlier this year, we have an understanding of what services and activities our community would like access to. We have also considered the site constraints and carefully located certain rooms and spaces.

We now have a draft layout for the community centre.

This includes:

  • two large activity/meeting rooms – one that can accommodate up to 140 people, with a sprung floor and 4m stud height to provide for active activities including dance, exercise and indoor recreation and another room which can accommodate up to 90 people, with presentation and conference capabilities
  • three meeting rooms of different sizes, the largest accommodating up to 16 people
  • a creative zone that can accommodate messy activities
  • a community kitchen where you can make yourself lunch
  • a shared open space to meet with friends, have informal meetings and do your homework
  • a parent lounge.

We have positioned the two activity/meeting rooms, kitchen and bathrooms to make best use of space, circulation and light. We have also included technology capabilities and storage throughout.

There will be 16 onsite parking spaces for visitors to the centre. Separate parking will be provided for the residents.


We want to know:

  • What community services and activities you would like to see provided, for example, classes and programmes, a place to meet and connect with others, hold meetings and events
  • If the proposed layout supports these
  • What should be provided to support the delivery of these community services and activities, for example, furniture, fittings and technology.


There are a number of ways you can give your feedback:

  • complete the online feedback form below
  • complete the hardcopy form and drop it off at the Meadowbank Community Centre, Tahapa Crescent Hall (note these facilities have limited opening hours) or Remuera Library
  • scan and email your completed form to meadowbankcommunitycentre@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz
  • join a drop-in session at the Meadowbank Community Centre on Saturday 10 September, 11am to 2pm, and outside the Meadowbank Countdown on Sunday 25 September, 11am to 2pm.
