Selwyn District Council works with its communities to make the district a great place to live, work and play. The district covers 6,420 square kilometres in central Canterbury, stretching from Lake Ellesmere in the south east to Arthur's Pass in the west.
The district is the fastest growing in New Zealand with a population in 2015 of 50,000 - expected to increase to 75,000 by 2031. Major towns include Rolleston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Darfield and Leeston. It has a rapidly growing economy and supports a flourishing agricultural and rural service sector.
Council's headquarters are in Rolleston, and service centres are located with libraries at Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln. Along with delivering and maintaining essential infrastructure, the Council provides a huge network of community services and facilities, including Selwyn Aquatic Centre in Rolleston, Lincoln Events Centre and the successful Izone Southern Business Hub.
