Summary and Bylaw (267KB PDF) | Text Version (2MB RTF)


Verandahs are an important feature of the urban environment, particularly in Wellington’s central city and suburban centres. They give shelter and protection from Wellington’s weather and add to our city’s character and attractiveness.

The Council has surveyed the city’s verandahs and established that a number need immediate action to be restored to a reasonable and safe standard.
