Kahungunu plans for Masterton hospital site
Land Information New Zealand is set to start clearing the site of the former Masterton Hospital before handing it over to a local iwi.
Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa Tāmaki Nui-a-Rua Settlement Trust has been offered the land, and is developing plans to refurbish a health centre on the site and use the rest to build an aged care facility.
Chair Robin Potangaroa says the project was estimated to cost between $20-30 million.
The hospital has been vacant for 14 years..
