Hei Āhuru Mōwai mō te Katoa

Increasing housing supply

The 10 year plan proposes planning for our growing city, ensuring we have enough housing, and working with organisations to ensure our people have warm, safe, dry homes to live in.

You’ll find detailed information on this priority in the Consultation Document.

What we’re doing

District and spatial plans

We’re currently reviewing the District Plan - our city’s rule book for land use that can influence housing availability and affordability. We’ve also made changes through District Plan Change 43 so that more homes in a mix of types and densities can be built.

At a regional level we’re working with other councils, central government and iwi on the Wellington Regional Growth Framework – a 30-year plan for the Wellington-Wairarapa-Horowhenua region.


We’re working with Te Rūnanganui o Te Āti Awa and Kahungunu Whānau Services to deliver homes for households in need.


Council is contributing funding to organisations to help people facing homelessness and housing hardship.

Urban Plus Limited

Our housing company Urban Plus Limited (UPL) now has a broader mandate from delivering social housing to providing affordable rental and home ownership options to a wider range of the community.

To achieve this UPL will have access to additional loan funding facilities.
