Wellington 2020

Friday 31 January 2014


This document sets out a vision for Wellington centre in 2020. It focuses specifically on the future functions and prosperity of the centre of Wellington, defined here as the area within and just outside the ring road.

It does not purport to be a comprehensive vision for life in Wellington – important issues such as education and skills, health and wellbeing are outside its remit. Rather it is concerned with how the centre of Wellington can respond to local and national trends and pressures in the years ahead.

As important as the vision statements are the proposed actions to help make this vision a reality. The intention is that this report at least serves as a starting point for conversations which lead quickly to practical actions. As such, the aim of this document is to move beyond warm words and wish lists towards a vision for Wellington centre which is not only positive but realistic and achievable.
