All going to Plan

CLOSED: This online engagement period has now concluded. Thank you for having your say.

By sharing your input you can contribute to our city’s future. We need to make sure we’re prioritising the right projects, and our long-term plans reflect our communities and what they will need in the future.

Every three years we formally consult on our ten-year Long Term Plan. This site profiles the projects agreed in LTP 2018-2028, and asks for your comments and ideas for what’s planned in your neighbourhood.

Use the map below in Major Projects to check out our investment in infrastructure, urban growth, leisure and wellbeing, and environmental sustainability. Projects in My Ward focus on development and key action areas in each of Hutt City Council’s six ward areas.

We want to have a conversation with you about what’s in our plan and how you can have a say in decision-making for the future of our city. There are lots of ways you can have input into what projects we fund and how we prioritise them. Share your thoughts!

    As well as the projects included in our Annual Plan, Hutt City Council is exploring options for the site of the Naenae Library once it has relocated to the new Community Hub. We want to make sure its future use helps revitalise Hillary Court and the area around it.

    We’ve been exploring options and we believe housing would be a good option, as it could be transformational and make Hillary Court safer, more vibrant, and more attractive to businesses. It would also help with the city-wide housing shortage, and could be designed to meet the needs of today’s...

    We’ve been exploring options and we believe housing would be a good option, as it could be transformational and make Hillary Court safer, more vibrant, and more attractive to businesses. It would also help with the city-wide housing shortage, and could be designed to meet the needs of today’s Naenae residents.

    You’ll see we’re also looking at housing as one option for the redevelopment of the Petone library for the same reason – an opportunity to provide much-needed safe and warm homes for current and future residents of Lower Hutt.

    • What are your thoughts on housing as part of the future Hillary Court design?
    • What else could be done on the Naenae library site?
    • What else could we do to revitalise Hillary Court and the area around it?

    We want to make sure the facility meets the current and future needs of the Petone community. We’re looking at several options which range from refurbishing the existing building, to replacing it with a multi-purpose facility which would meet the existing needs, and additionally could offer more community spaces and services.

    We’re also considering options for housing as part of the facility, given the current shortage of housing in our city, and a redeveloped Civic area providing a better connection to Jackson Street.  You’ll see we’re also looking at housing as an option for the redevelopment of the Naenae Library site, once that’s relocated to the new Community Hub, for the same reason – an opportunity to provide much-needed safe and warm homes for current and future residents of Lower Hutt.

    We’re keen to hear your ideas and thoughts, which can be contributed here until 14th April 2019. Additionally, you can visit the display at Petone Library and talk to staff there.

    1. What services and activities do you currently use in the Petone Community Library and Heritage Centre?

    2. What is the one thing you would like to change or improve in the current facility?

    3. What services and activities would you like to see in a new facility?

    4. How would you like a new facility to interact with the surrounding Petone civic areas?
    We’re considering options for housing as part of the facility.
    What do you think would be the benefits & opportunities of this?
    What do you think would be the challenges?
