Wellington’s town belt looks set to increase in size by 100 hectares and be given greater legal protection.
The town belt is 400 hectares in size, and stretches from Mt Victoria to Te Ahumairangi Hill.
Wellington City Council drafted the Wellington Town Belt Bill in 2013 and the process of Parliament enacting it into law has begun.
If it becomes law, 100ha of land will be added to the town belt from Northland, Highbury, Aro Valley, Mt Cook and Roseneath.
Wellington would not be the great city to live in it is, without the Town Belt. Very supportive of seeing other areas of council parks formally made part of the town belt, to protect it.
