District Plan Review

We will also be undertaking a full review of the current Wellington City District Plan as part of the Planning for Growth work. The District Plan will ultimately include objectives, policies, and rules to implement the Spatial Plan.

What is a District Plan

The District Plan is essentially the 'rulebook' for land development in our city and is intended to help manage development of the city by regulating the environmental effects created by new buildings and activities.

As a Council, we are required to have a District Plan under the The Resource Management Act 1991 to help promote the sustainable management of the natural and physical resources in Wellington.

When will the District Plan Review begin?

The District Plan Review process will start in late 2019 and will be ongoing until 2023. See the timeline for the Planning for Growth project or contact us at planningforgrowth@wcc.govt.nz for more information.
