Strategic Urban Development

Strategic planning for urban development in the central city

Responding to how people use the central city, move around it, and interact with its buildings, public spaces and natural environments is key to growing the vibrancy and dynamism of the central city. 

Wellington City Council has developed the Central City Framework – a plan to guide the future development of the central city’s built form, infrastructure and public spaces.  It includes the following ideas:

  1. Laneways
  2. Cross-valley Links
  3. Capital precincts: Parliament and Memorial Park
  4. Victoria Street Precinct
  5. Triangular Spaces
  6. Green infrastructure
  7. Boulevards
  8. Better connected waterfront
  9. Quality built form
