Live updates: Wellington City Council approves ambitious new District Plan


The big day has arrived, and Wellington editor Joel MacManus is in the room as council votes on the city’s District Plan.

Today, Wellington city councillors introduced series of amendments to the District Plan, rewriting it line-by-line. Any councillor could introduce an amendment, and each one was voted on individually. Housing minister Chris Bishop will have the final say on either accepting a council amendment or keeping the relevant panel recommendation.

The full list of amendments can be read here.

I’ve been here in Wellington City Council chambers on The Terrace, live blogging every moment as it happened, with some handy notes for those catching up. To watch along, the meeting is being livestreamed below.

Keep going!
