Getting the community together will be a little easier for Luggate locals now that a temporary community facility is open for public use.

The relocatable building on Hopkins St Reserve has been redecorated, including a kitchen and two bathrooms.

Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) general manager community services Dr Thunes Cloete said opening the temporary building was an “important milestone” on the way to constructing a permanent community centre.

The council recently appointed a design and management team to create a new “ultra-low-energy passive house concept”.

“The initial concepts demonstrated a smart and sustainable solution for a growing community.

scheduled for completion in March 2020 and we’re looking forward to displaying plans in the temporary facility for the public to see,” he said.

Construction of the permanent Luggate Hall was scheduled for completion in mid-2021.

“Once completed, this will be a landmark, sustainable centre to meet the long-term needs of the growing Luggate community and the wider district.”
