Urban planning influences how we use our buildings, homes, streets, public spaces and infrastructure.
It's important that we build our city to help achieve sustainable outcomes, including environmental sustainability.
Where are we at?
- Creating a strategy to guide development within the city
- Upgrading Hutt CBD streets as part of the CBD Master Plan
- Signatory to the New Zealand Urban Design Protocol
- Developing and consulting on an Urban Growth Strategy
- Adding permeable surface requirements to the District Plan
- Developing a design guide for central commercial activity areas.
