Melville bright spots and land use

Posted on by 0 comment

Melville has one of the highest concentrations of schools in Hamilton, with 5 primary schools if you count South City Christian School and Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Whakawetea. This provides lots for choice for families choosing to live in this part of the city and helps to explain why the median age in Melville is 2 years below the median for Hamilton city.

Looking for Melville’s bright spot, Mountview Rd is attractive to an increasing number of people, who on average are younger and increasingly wealthier than the people living there last century.

We should note that the 2013 census data is starting to age; there is investment along Mahoe St, Catalina Dr and Saxby’s Rd and the outcome from this new investment is not measured in the 2013 statistics currently available.
