A City for People

Fiscal Host: Gift Collective

Advocating for more housing Wellington City's District Plan

About


Everyone in Wellington should have a chance to live in a home that is affordable, accessible, healthy and warm. We’re asking Wellington City Councillors to pass an ambitious District Plan in March 2024 so all generations can share the city we love.

Our vision
We want a city built for people, with thriving communities, where it’s easy to get around and everyone can live close to where they work, study, and socialise. We want affordable, well-designed homes and buildings, high quality green spaces, and easy access to more equitable, low-carbon transport options. 
Decades of inaction have meant house prices are out of control, while old rental properties are rotting out from underneath us. A whole generation of people are being forced out from the city spending hours every day in traffic jams, or moving away entirely.
The new District Plan is an opportunity for change. Our city is growing and we want to welcome new neighbours. We need our city councillors to change the rules and make it easier to build more homes in the existing suburbs where people want to live.

Please contribute if you want more homes in Wellington.  Every donation helps us extend our reach and impact, no matter how small.
