Design & architecture
Like most English towns, Wellington has grown and changed over several centuries. We want new development to be sensitive to that local context – to the materials of the buildings it will sit amongst, and to the contours of the streetscape of which it will be a part. Good design doesn’t need to cost any more than bad design, yet too often we’ve ended up with poorly designed buildings and public spaces that damage rather than enhance their surroundings. We’re determined that from now on, everything built in Wellington enhances the character and distinctiveness of the town, rather than undermining it.
