The Sir Howard Morrison Centre closed in November 2017 following a seismic assessment that identified the building as earthquake prone.
Since then significant planning and design work has been undertaken to strengthen and redevelop the centre. Construction is currently underway with the centre reopening in mid-2022.
Visit Rotorua Lakes Council for more information on the Sir Howard Morrison Centre closure, strengthening and redevelopment.
