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

A Hearings Panel has recommended that the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approves a change to the reserve classification for part of Kyle Park, along with management plan amendments.
The decision means that Kyle Park is a step closer to becoming home to Hornby’s new library, customer services and recreation and sport centre. The Community Board is set to make a decision on Tuesday 9 July.
The recommendation follows overwhelming public support for the changes, with 85 per cent of submissions to the Christchurch City Council in favour.
The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board is set to consider the recommendation on 23 July before making a final decision on Kyle Park’s partial reclassification and management plan amendments.
In December 2018, Councillors approved the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board’s recommendation backing Kyle Park as the preferred location.
