    This has been developed and over the next 10 years we will work toward the main aim of the strategy – for all Wellingtonians to be well housed. The strategy covers the full spectrum of housing – from emergency housing, social housing, assisted rental, private rental and assisted ownership through to private ownership. It aims to provide Wellingtonians with quality, resilient homes and has provided the direction for many of the projects discussed earlier in this section.

  • Wellington City Library

    On 19 March 2019 we made the decision to close the Central Library after receiving advice from engineers that the building has structural vulnerabilities which may mean it may not perform well in the event of a significant earthquake. The footpath around the Library building and the public car park has also been closed. The Library will be closed until further notice, as we start to investigate options and make some decisions about what approach we take to repairs. Until we know the nature of the repair work, we are not in a position to say when the Library will be reopened and how much it might cost.

    We are looking at ways to offer alternative library services, including making use of our community branches, digital services and other offerings in the central city. For more information, please visit our website.
