Spring has arrived, and so has the new Tō Tātou Pōneke – Our Wellington magazine.

Everything you need to know about life in the capital this season is in the new edition of Wellington City Council’s quarterly magazine, which is being delivered to letterboxes this week.

The spring edition covers the period from 1 September to 30 November 2023.

It's chock full of information and news, ways to engage with us, and a range of handy tips for Wellingtonians.

Our Wellington magazine - spring 2023 (9.5MB PDF)

This issue focuses on some of the big projects happening across our city, including the citywide network of connected bike routes that are being created alongside walking improvements and big public transport changes.

These changes will give people more options to get around in ways that are good for our health, our environment, and our economy – and without our transport network grinding to a halt.

We have updates on Let’s Get Wellington Moving with work set to start on the Golden Mile, and we meet our new Central City Manager Prak Sritharan, who will be working with businesses to create a vision and plan to rejuvenate the Courtenay Place precinct.

Find out where our new and refreshed play areas are and get all the details for Wellington Gardens’ Spring Festival along with the city’s full schedule of events and exhibitions.

In this issue, we talk about the Council’s new Zero Waste Strategy, and there’s also a story about how Botanic Garden ki Paekākā has reduced it carbon footprint by being the first plant nursery in Aotearoa to ditch gas heaters and use heated pipes to keep their glasshouses warm.

The spring edition also features funding opportunities, dates for upcoming Council meetings, and how you can reach your local ward Councillors and Mayor.
