Cambridge Town Hall improvements

Our plan for the next 10 years

The Cambridge Town Hall is an iconic part of Cambridge’s story. The hall was built in 1909 and used as the town hall as well as borough offices. Over the last 100 plus years, the hall has served a diverse range of community needs.

The hall is a category-two historic building owned by Council and recognised by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. This means it is recognised as a building with historical or cultural significance or value to New Zealand.

The town hall plays an important role in the Cambridge community and we want to continue to maintain the hall and preserve it for many years to come. We also want to make sure the hall is used and celebrated a lot more than it is now, and continues to be a community space for everyone to enjoy.

At this stage, Council has set aside $4.4 million to undertake further earthquake strengthening of the hall as well as making improvements to the facility.
