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

Wellington’s Draft District Plan – the first fully revised planning rulebook in more than 20 years - will be considered by the City Council’s Pūroro Āmua Planning and Environment Committee on 20 October for consultation, starting on 2 November.

The plan deals with the major planning issues facing the city and region in the next two to three decades – including population growth, housing affordability, protecting the City’s biodiversity, transport, climate change and natural hazards.

Next week’s committee agenda, including the Draft District Plan, can be viewed on the WCC website.


If approved, the Draft District Plan consultation will happen alongside consultation for the Bike Network and Let's Get Wellington Moving's mass rapid transit options.
We will be visiting communities and seeking feedback during the consultation. You can see the draft road show schedule here. The consultation will close on 14 December.
