Background

Wellington’s population is growing and people’s housing needs are changing. There’s a greater need for housing choice to cater for one and two-person households, a growing demand for lower maintenance properties, and a trend for people to want to move into different housing types in their existing suburb. We also need a greater supply of affordable good-quality housing.

The Council has a responsibility to give the community what it needs and to make it possible for a variety of housing types to be developed.
