The five-storey Palmerston North City Council administration building and Council Chamber (attached at right) were constructed 1976-79. The contractor was McMillan & Lockwood Ltd of Palmerston North. The siting of the complex over the roadway and into The Square gardens was controversial. The first Council meeting was held in the new premises in December 1979, and Council staff moved in, in January 1980.
