Suburban Centres Review

Newtown, Wellington


Wellington City Council has reviewed the planning rules that affect land zoned 'suburban centre'.

Suburban centres include local shops, town centres, industrial areas, office parks and big retail stores outside the central city - the places where people shop, work, socialise and access services.

The review included:

  • how suburban centre zones are performing
  • whether current planning is working
  • current issues
  • managing future suburban centre development and activities.

The review formed the basis of proposed District Plan Change 73.
