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

The plan deals with the major planning and environmental issues facing the city – including housing supply, choice and affordability, protecting biodiversity, integrating growth and infrastructure, responding to climate change and managing the risk of natural hazards. You can see the ePlan here.

Consultation on the Draft District Plan closed on 14 December.

What’s next

The submissions will be evaluated over the next few months and a report will be published in early 2022. Oral submissions will take place in late February/March.

Statutory consultation on the Proposed Plan will be taking place mid 2022.
