We want to grow and diversify the city’s economy.

Up to 280,000 people are expected to call Wellington home by 2043. With much of the population growth predicted to be in the inner city, and the city centre being the economic hub of the region, good planning that accommodates for both, while also taking into account the effects of climate change will be crucial.

We’re investing in economic projects that stimulate growth and diversification, and planning for population growth in ways that recognise the city’s special character.

Find out what key projects we are investing in for 2019/20:

  • Convention and Exhibition Centre
  • Planning for Growth
  • Frank Kitts Park
  • Business Improvement District (BIDs)
  • North Kumutoto waterfront space
  • Indoor arena
  • Newlands Community Park development
  • Making Wellington more accessible
We've also provided an update on key sustainable growth projects that we are working on but are scheduled to physically start in a couple of years.
