Wellington City Council

At the Council, we have a clear unifying purpose:

Kia mahi ngātahi mō Pōneke mō tōna āpōpō. Working together for Wellington's future.

Wellington is a vibrant city with a thriving cultural life, talented people, and cutting-edge businesses.

Known as the arts and events capital of New Zealand, the city has an abundance of recreation and leisure opportunities. It is also a compact city with a dramatic landscape and sound infrastructure.

Everything we do, we do for Wellington. Our environment, economy, history, but most importantly, our people - residents, business people, visitors and diverse communities.

Whether it's caring for Wellington's gorgeous natural environment, providing services and facilities to support the physical, mental and cultural wellbeing of residents and visitors or supporting the business community to build a strong and resilient local economy, we're here for our city.
