A new Hornby library, customer services, and recreation and sport centre is planned for the growing south-west community.

Vision for the new Hornby Library, Customer Services, South West Leisure Centre

With more than 12,000 new homes expected in Christchurch’s south-west by 2044, the Council has approved a $35.7 million budget for facilities to serve the growing population. It's hoped to begin construction in early 2021, for a late 2022 opening.
