Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.

The first look at the proposed design for the Naenae Pool and Fitness suite is here!

Before we get into detailed design and begin construction, we want to check in with everyone who will be using the pool to make sure we're delivering the best facility possible – for Naenae and Te Awakairangi.
In this draft design, you'll notice features that reflect what the community and aquatic sports users told us they wanted. We're;

🏊‍♂️ Keeping the 50-metre pool;

🎉 making sure the facility is a place for birthdays, special occasions, and the building is accessible; and

🌴 moving the site position in Walter Mildenhall park to better connect it with Hillary Court.

This is your chance to give feedback so we can ensure this plan for the pool reflects your needs! Let us know what you think 👇
