Our 10-Year Plan sets out the projects and initiatives we intend to invest in to make Wellington more resilient, vibrant and competitive, and make sure our residents continue to have a high quality of life.

It focuses on five priority areas:
- Resilience and the environment
- Sustainable growth
- Arts and culture
These priority areas are designed to respond to the challenges we know Wellington faces: significant population growth, which has an impact on housing and transport; growing competition from other cities that also invest in their arts and culture, and seek to attract skilled labour and visitors; the threat of another earthquake; and climate-change related events like rising sea levels.
The projects and initiatives we propose will require additional borrowing of $655 million to fund capital expenditure. We’ve committed to an average rates increase of 3.8 percent for 2018/19 after growth, and an average of 4.0 percent over the 10 years of the plan.
