safe & strong communities


The Wellington Party believes in supporting community-led initiatives and empowering Wellingtonians to enjoy all that our city has to offer.

Wellington is known for its diverse communities, vibrant city scene, and accessible atmosphere. However, we have room to improve on this and ensure our city and community spaces work for and welcome everyone.

We’re proud of our increasing cultural diversity, beautiful green, reserves, parks, and domains, active community centres and halls, and vibrant markets and festivals. These are all opportunities for us to engage and connect as a community and the local council has a role to play in facilitating, maintaining, developing and promoting such events and spaces.

The council also has a role to play in ensuring the safety and well-being of both locals and visitors while out and about in our city. Seeing to needs within the Councils control and advocating for needs beyond its control is what locals deserve and expect. Ensuring there is adequate accessibility, ample lighting in our streets, and that we look out for our most vulnerable are ways we can show instead of tell that we care.

As our city grows and our needs develop Wellington needs a council that will listen, adapt and most importantly act. Receptive and responsive representatives make the difference between a council that serves the people and a council that falls out of touch.

Community serving policy needs to be community driven. That’s why we invite you to contact us and our candidates with your views, insights, and needs so that we can shape and develop policies that truly work for you.

Our commitment to you is that we will always be open to your input. We will build strong partnerships with community, governmental and non-governmental organisations. We will deliver more connected infrastructure and smarter investment in local facilities and spaces.

We will work for all Wellingtonians.
