This page highlights some of the projects we have in our work programme for 2020/21.

We have not made any changes to our work programme in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. This situation may change and we will keep Wellingtonians posted as the situation evolves.

Our plans for the year and the funding for those projects are divided into seven areas.

Our strategic areas

  • Governance – We inform residents, and engage with them about the city and the issues it faces, manage local elections, and work with mana whenua to make decisions in the best interests of the city and its people.
  • Environment & InfrastructureWe provide water, stormwater and wastewater services and look after waste reduction and disposal. We fund conservation attractions, and look after parks, reserves, tracks and walkways.
  • Economic development – We attract and support business activity, market Wellington to tourists from New Zealand and overseas, and own and operate performance venues and conference facilities. We also help promote links with sister cities such as Sakai in Japan.
  • Cultural wellbeing – We fund city events and festivals such as the New Zealand Festival and CubaDupa. We support attractions, galleries and museums, and community art and cultural activities.
  • Social and recreation – We provide community and social facilities throughout the city. This includes social housing, libraries, community centres, swimming pools, sportsfields and playgrounds. We also work to reduce homelessness and begging, and improve city safety.
  • Urban development – We manage urban planning and design, control building activity and land use, and assess risks from earthquake-prone buildings. We also develop and enhance public spaces.
  • Transport – We provide and maintain roads, bridges, tunnels, walls, cycleways, and pedestrian paths. We also provide bus shelters, bus stops and bus lanes, and signs and traffic signals.

You can download the details of our work programme for information on what we are planning in each of these areas. Otherwise we have some highlights below in the More Information tab.
