Pre-election report

The Pre-Election Report is produced every three years before the local body elections. It is required under the Local Government Act 2002, with the purpose of providing information to promote public discussion about the issues facing the local authority. 

The theme of this year’s report is ‘A City in Transition, A Sector in Transition’, acknowledging the period of transformation our city and the local government sector will be experiencing over the next few years. 

The report includes analysis of five key challenges Wellington is facing: 

  • Our infrastructure and planning for growth 
  • Our resilience and adaptability 
  • Our economy 
  • Our funding and resourcing 
  • Our changing local government sector. 

Potential local body election candidates and residents are encouraged to read this report to gain an understanding of the big challenges and opportunities which lie ahead for the Council and the city.
