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


We're reviewing our heritage list

We’ve been working with historians and architectural specialists to identify places and objects that may have significant heritage values. This is so we can start talking with landowners about what they might have, and the ways that we can help them look after it.
