Trading and event activities can make our city more vibrant, diverse, and inspiring. Activities in our parks, reserves, and Town Belt can increase use and enjoyment of our open spaces, which can also bring health and wellbeing benefits.

Our goal is to manage trading and event activities on Wellington Town Belt and reserves so that the cultural, natural, recreation, and community values are protected and enhanced.

We consulted on the proposed Trading and Events in Public Places Policy from 7 July

Trading and event activities can make our city more vibrant, diverse, and inspiring. Activities in our parks, reserves, and Town Belt can increase use and enjoyment of our open spaces, which can also bring health and wellbeing benefits.

Our goal is to manage trading and event activities on Wellington Town Belt and reserves so that the cultural, natural, recreation, and community values are protected and enhanced.

We consulted on the proposed Trading and Events in Public Places Policy from 7 July to 16 August 2021. The policy was adopted on 4 November 2021 and will take effect from July next year. Details of the policy consultation can be found here. Part of the consultation asked for feedback on proposed sites on Wellington Town Belt and reserves where some types of low-scale and low-impact trading and event activities could happen with Council officer approval.

We heard a wide range of views during this consultation. Many were supportive of the proposals and some submitters wanted more clarity and information.

As a result of these concerns we are carrying out this further consultation to:

  • clarify which activities could be carried out at each site
  • further explain our rationale for why we are making these proposals
  • include new proposed sites for activities
  • provide for mobile and transitory-type activities to take place across the reserve and Wellington Town Belt track network
  • identify the sites which are Sites and Areas of Significance to Māori (SASM) Significant Natural Areas (SNA), and historical.
