Better value for rates, a plan for growth
A city that can earn a living for itself and create opportunities, won’t have to put more of the financial burden on the people that live within it.
Wellington is an amazing city with incredible economic opportunities at our doorstep. We are the home to world class innovation and education, a dynamic tourism market, and an international gateway to the world.
Sadly, over the years, a chronic lack of leadership, competence and ambition in the City Council has seen Wellington drag the chain. We are falling behind other major cities in New Zealand, and frankly you deserve better.
Ratepayers deserve a council that keeps rates low, that invests in much needed infrastructure for growth, and champions our local businesses to innovate and succeed.
Our plan for a stronger local economy is based on five key principles:
Balance the Council books and pay off debt
Deliver the infrastructure needed for a growing city
Rebuild and champion our tourism opportunities
Back business and innovation
Ensure affordable, accountable and local core services deliver results
Our aim is to ensure your Council spends your hard-earned ratepayer dollars wisely, while ensuring we invest in much need infrastructure to unlock our city’s potential. A city that can earn a living for itself and create opportunities, won’t have to put more of the financial burden on the people that live within it.
