What happened to this consultation?

Wellington City Council sought your views on allowing medium-density housing to be developed in Tawa, and along with that, making improvements to Tawa town centre.

We want to make sure that all new development is high quality, the design and appearance fits in with the surrounding environment, and it can stand the test of time.

Next steps

After the closing date we will:

  • collate and analyse your responses to this consultation and develop a draft Tawa town centre plan and a draft district plan change
  • consult on the draft town centre plan and district plan change with local residents, businesses and other stakeholders, and following that make amendments as appropriate
  • take the proposed town centre plan and district plan change to the Council for approval
  • enter the more formal consultation process for the district plan change, including seeking public submissions and holding a public hearing, then release the decision
  • when the town centre plan is approved by the Council, start on the priority projects.
