Our city is growing. The District Plan is up for review. The decisions we make now will shape the way we live for decades.  

Kei te tipu te taone.  Ka arotakengia anōtia te Mahere Ā-Rohe.  Ko ngā whakataunga o naianei, ka pāngia ki tō tātou āhua noho mō ngā tau e whai ake.

We live in one of the most liveable cities in the world!  We cherish our edgy culture and beautiful heritage buildings.  We love the blue harbour and green belt that frame our city.  We are proud to have the lowest carbon emissions per capita in Australasia.

In the next 30 years Wellington will be home to 50,000 to 80,000 more people.  That's going to have a big impact on our city.  Not just where we live, but how we live.

Do we want family homes in the suburbs, or apartments on the bus route? Do we have more high-rise in the city or apartments around our suburban centres? Do we stretch into rural areas, or build new houses in our character suburbs?

We need your help.  We have four scenarios to show the different ways we might grow. Each has its pros and cons, so we want to know what aspects you like, or don't like about each.

This is our once in a generation chance to get things right.  By taking part, you are helping us make the right decisions for our city tomorrow.
