How we got here

How We Got Here - Our City Tomorrow Goals

In 2017, we asked Wellingtonians what they wanted for Our City Tomorrow. The people told us they want a city that is:

  • compact
  • inclusive and connected
  • greener
  • resilient
  • vibrant and prosperous.

We also know people support better public transport and more opportunities to walk and cycle around the city from Let's Get Wellington Moving.

We consulted on our 10-Year Plan last year, which included the Planning for Growth project as a priority. People supported our focus on growth and future-proofing the city. They also supported us working with partners in government and the community to increase housing supply. Council adopted the 10-Year Plan, including this project in June 2018.

The Planning for Growth project is now building on these items which will involve various stages of public engagement and consultation over the next few years. This will ultimately lead to the creation of a Spatial Plan as well as a review of the current District Plan.
