Introduction

Frankton has a history centred on rail and a story that is tied
to Hamilton’s origins. It is a place with a special character
and its economic identity is based on a tradition of trade
and family businesses. It is a mature inner city suburb, close
to the central city and major event facilities. It is surrounded
by parks, and the historic West Town Belt, and is connected
by some of Hamilton’s main transport routes. The residential
areas are a mix of older homes and medium density housing.

Over the past thirty years Frankton has lost some of its charm,
but this inner city location and mixed economy make it an
ideal place to live and work. This plan is about rediscovering
Frankton and its role in Hamilton as an urban village, with
projects to enable Frankton to develop and grow, while
preserving its history and uniqueness.
