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

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 where, and how we live.

At Council, it’s our job to make sure our city has a diverse range of housing. People want to live in communities that are safe from earthquakes and rising sea-levels, in a city that is green, compact, inclusive, and vibrant.


Draft Spatial Plan Consultation and Engagement on hold

With all that is happening with COVID 19, we have made the decision to put the Draft Spatial Plan community engagement on hold.  

The most important thing just now is keeping well, and looking out for each other, so we don’t think the time is right to ask for your feedback on big projects like this. We will keep assessing the situation and let you know as soon as things look ready to go again. 

Getting your feedback on a big proposal like this is important to us, and we want to make sure everyone has a chance to have their say when the time is right.

If you have any questions in the meantime please email us at planningforgrowth@wcc.govt.nz
