Consultations and engagements

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the Draft Spatial Plan - we’ve had a great response with around 3000 submissions. We will be publishing them as soon as we can.

We received a large number of requests from submitters to speak at our engagement forum which kicked off Wednesday 4th November. If you registered to speak, Democracy Services will be in touch with you to schedule a timeslot. An individual submitter will have 5 minutes to speak to their submissions. An organisation will have 10 minutes to speak to their submission. Presentation can be made via Zoom if requested.

Engagement events

Our City Tomorrow engagement

We visited Wellington communities during the Draft Spatial Plan engagement with events and pop ups to provide the opportunity for people to ask questions about the plan.

Watch the 'Planning for Growth Live' event

We hosted a "Planning for Growth Live' online event -  ‘What’s the shape of our city tomorrow?’ on the 13th of August

First Retail’s Chris Wilkinson, Talk Wellington’s Isabella Cawthorn, Vic University Senior Lecturer Rebecca Kiddle, Architect Gerald Parsonson, and Gen Zero’s Arron Cox dig into the detail of Our City Tomorrow (the Draft Spatial Plan) at this live stage event.

We have published the answers to all the audience questions, see the 'Q&As from the event' link below.  Thanks so much to everyone who sent in questions and answered the polls.


Closed engagements

Growth Scenarios Engagement

In April and May 2019, we engaged on four growth scenarios that provided some options on how and where we could grow across the city. This was the start of our engagement on the Planning for Growth project. Find out what we heard and view full details of each of the scenarios.
