    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.

    Council has been working with the Alex Moore Park Sport and Community Incorporated (AMPSCI) group regarding the development of a sporting hub at Alex Moore Park which will be used by a number of sports and community groups. At the end of 2018 a revised proposal for the sports hub at Alex Moore Park was agreed. The total cost to build the hub is $4.2 million of which the group will contribute $2 million. The Council will manage the build over two years. Of the $4.2 million, $796,000 is already budgeted and will be brought forward from year four of Our 10-Year Plan into 2019/20. An additional $3.4 million is proposed to be budgeted in 2020/21, through the next 10-Year Plan. This investment will be partially offset by the group repaying $2 million.

  • Community housing support

    Aligned to our goal of ensuring all Wellingtonians are well housed we propose to support community housing provider, Dwell Housing Trust, to deliver 14 housing units in Kilbirnie. Dwell aims to provide safe, secure and comfortable homes for people in need or are on a low income. Dwell currently takes applications from the Ministry of Social Development’s Social Housing Register when they have vacancies. This allows allocation of housing vacancies to those most in need We propose to support this project by providing a grant of $60,400 to cover the development contribution associated with this development. This will be funded from prior year surpluses so will not affect the 2019/20 rates requirement.
