Annual Report 2020/2021

Nau mai ki tā mātou tirohanga rāpopoto o te tau 2020/2021.
Welcome to our snapshot of the 2020/2021 year.

The theme for this year’s report is manaakitanga – we rise by lifting others. We strive to put people at the heart of what we do, and to respect the many different people, groups and cultures who make up our city. Whether fronting up to challenges or celebrating who we are and what has been achieved, we continue to persevere and show resilience. Together we’re working towards a version of Wellington we can all enjoy.

The Annual Report 2020/2021 was adopted by the Council on 28 October 2021.

The report this year is split into two volumes.

Volume 1

Volume 1 includes the Independent Auditor’s Opinion on our report and performance for the year. It is split into three sections:

Section 1: Summary of our year
This section includes an overview of the year from the Mayor and Chief Executive, the highlights and challenges, our Council vision, an overview of our core business, and summaries of our performance this year.

Section 2: Our performance in detail
This section describes in detail how we performed in each of our seven strategic activity areas and our Council-controlled organisations. Each activity area includes an overview of the activities from the year, and a summary of financials and performance measures.

Section 3: Our leadership and our people
This section describes the Council’s democratic and corporate governance arrangements and presents information relating to our elected members, committees, groups and business units, organisational structure and staff.

Volume 2

This volume contains our comprehensive financial information for the year ending 30 June 2021. It includes all financial statements, notes to those statements and detailed information on how we fund our activities.


The summary is a condensed version of the Annual Report. The financial statements and performance summaries in this version of report do not include all of the disclosures provided in the full report.
