What you said

1,372 people have had their say...

Between 8 April and 17 May 2019 we asked people to have their say on the pros and cons of four growth scenarios. The numbers are in, you had your say, and now we know what you want for your city tomorrow.

We received:

  • 1324 survey responses
  • 48 written/email submissions

A full breakdown of the feedback we received from survey responses is provided below. We also accepted written feedback submitted by email and letters. A breakdown of these submissions and more details on all feedback received can be found in our final report.

The results of the survey show that…


agree that keeping our city compact with high density in the CBD and inner suburbs balances trade-offs well


agree that development in and around our existing suburban centres that is supported by inner-city growth does the best job of balancing trade-offs


agree that a new suburb in Ohariu Valley is the best way to balance trade-offs


agree that trade-offs are best balanced by extending suburbs around Takapu Valley, Horokiwi, and Owhiro Bay.

Do you agree this scenario balances trade-offs well for Wellington's future?
