Wellington City Council (Council) is planning for substantial growth in the next 30 years. We are in the early stages of scoping a review of our Urban Growth Plan and the District Plan in order to provide for this future growth.
To inform this work, the Council is undertaking a comprehensive review of the existing development constraints and opportunities to better understand how our current planning approach might need to change. One of these areas is the ‘pre-1930s’ character controls and location specific character areas in the Residential chapter of the District Plan.
While Council is committed to retaining sense of place and character, we also need to plan for future growth. With limited options to grow out, we will need to look fundamentally at what options are available within the existing footprint and balance this against the desire to protect Wellington’s residential character.
Council requires a stocktake of the pre-1930s character areas (i.e. Mt. Cook, Thorndon, Holloway Road, Aro Valley/The Terrace and Newtown/Berhampore) and an assessment of the ‘on the ground’ character of these areas, specifically identifying for each area:
• The level of concentration of the pre-1930s buildings.
• The extent to which these buildings contribute to ‘townscape’ and/or ‘streetscape’ character’.
• Are there any contiguous areas that represent townscape/streetscape values more strongly than others?
• Are there particular buildings that fall within the ‘pre-1930s’ character overlay that demonstrate particularly outstanding character or potential historic heritage value that may warrant further investigation?
This study does not include Mt. Victoria, which was the subject of a similar process in 2016. The methodology for this study will be similar to that employed for the Mt. Victoria study and includes; generation of maps; identification of high level themes; style analysis; incorporation of themes & styles; delivery of survey; collection and mapping of attribute data; and provision of a report by 16 November 2018.
