Summary of changes
The Outer Green Belt reserves support the growth of Wellington City and our compact urban form. The draft management plan describes how the Outer Green Belt provides ecosystem services to the city (such as providing fresh water, holding carbon and protecting soils and vegetation).
The draft plan also notes the role of the Outer Green Belt as a recreation space that is easy to access and where people can participate in a range of activities such as walking, running, biking or participating in environmental care activities. This allows people to meet others in their community, lead active lives and foster a connection to the natural environment, even though they live in a city. The plan includes ideas about how the reserves can support city resilience and help create resilient communities.
