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.

In April and May last year we asked people to tell us how they feel about four different growth scenarios. In the next few months we will be following up to seek feedback on a Draft Spatial Plan, in the meantime register for our upcoming Speaker Series and sign up for our email newsletter.


Speaker Series 2020

What is high density living, and can it be done well? How will modern design change the character of our place? Should we live with, or flee from the effects of climate change?

As we plan for growth, this is our moment to create streets for people; design communities that thrive; build affordable homes that are good for the planet and high quality.

Join us in a conversation about the newest thinking from here and overseas, and what it means for our city.

When: 5.30pm Thursday 27 February (a few spaces area available) and 5 March (join the wait-list).
Where: Prefab Hall,  14 Jessie Street, Te Aro
