District Plan Change 73: Suburban Centres Review
Suburban Centres Map
This project is part of Wellington City Council’s 10-year rolling review of the Wellington District Plan, the city’s planning rule book.
This zone was introduced 10 years ago under a flexible approach that allows any activity to locate anywhere. One result has been residential activities developing in traditionally industrial areas, such as Greta Point.
Flexibility lets market trends develop, and has allowed some areas to evolve into more vibrant places. However several important issues have emerged and have been addressed as part of proposed District Plan Change 73.
The Council has identified some proposals in a Centres Policy for the future development and management of the city's centres. A consultation on the draft policy took place from May to July 2008.
The Suburban Centres Review links with other Council projects currently underway. The Northern Growth Management Framework and the Urban Development Strategy (including the 'growth spine') are also providing policy guidance.
