We’re reviewing and updating our District Plan to ensure it enables economic and residential growth while protecting the things that make Wellington special.

Wellington City’s Proposed District Plan will go to the Council’s Pūroro Āmua Planning and Environment Committee on 23 June for agreement to notify and consult. The committee agenda, including the Proposed District Plan, can be viewed on the WCC website

At the end of last year Wellingtonians provided feedback on the non-statutory Draft District Plan’s proposed policies, rules and design guides to manage development of our city. There were 1034 submissions. Some changes have been made to the Proposed Plan due to feedback received from the community, and the Government’s new rules on medium-density housing.

Consultation dates
If approved, the Proposed District Plan consultation will open for submissions on 18 July (subject to change) until 12 September. The Proposed Plan will go live on wellington.govt.nz. This site will be archived and all visitors here will be redirected to the up to date information on wellington.govt.nz

Proposed District Plan drop-in sessions (TBC)
