Our City Tomorrow: A Draft Spatial Plan
It’s arrived. A vision about how our city will look 30 years from now is taking shape, and we’re keen to know what you think. The Council wants to hear how well Our City Tomorrow: A Draft Spatial Plan for Wellington City meets the goals of ensuring a compact, resilient, vibrant and prosperous, inclusive and connected, and greener Wellington city. Your feedback will help us complete a final Spatial Plan that will feed into the District Plan Review.Completed submissions

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.
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.Read more about Growth Scenarios
