Arlington development

Last year when we adopted Our 10-Year Plan, we signalled that that we would investigate opportunities to partner with other agencies – including other housing providers, developers and central government – to deliver more affordable housing in Wellington. We also said that once we had more details, and specific proposals were ready, further consultation would occur with the community.

We are actively working with central government on options for the redevelopment and long-term lease of the Council’s social housing complex at Arlington sites 1 and 3. This will be subject to a separate consultation process in May 2019.

It is expected that $5.2 million of capital expenditure in 2019/20 previously planned for this site will no longer be required and can be reallocated to the broader Housing Upgrade Programme. Most of this site was already anticipated to be vacant in the 10-Year Plan to allow redevelopment, so only minor changes to the operating costs will be required.
