"A waterfront with plenty of open spaces and panoramic views"


Waterfront Watch loves Wellington and especially our marvellous waterfront.

We are committed to preserving this resource for the people of Wellington and whilst we will support appropriate development that enhances public spaces and usage, we will question any excessive development that seeks to privatise and restrict public access, remove views and viewshafts, downgrades our heritage or introduces excess shading or wind issues.

WCC’s Draft Wellington Waterfront Development Plan for 2015- 2018.

WCC’s Draft Wellington Waterfront Development Plan for 2015- 2018 can be seen at

Submissions close on Friday April 24 2015.  That's in ONE week!

It is important to say what you think, particularly about the re-development of the Frank Kitts Park and the planned Chinese Garden.

There is also a container presentation next to the northern end of the Lagoon Bridge, of the plans for Frank Kitts Park and the Chinese Garden in particular.  It asks the question: "Is it time for a name change for the area now named Frank Kitts Park?" and feedback from the public is invited for a more appropriate name

North Kumutoto Site 10 visit : February 18 2015.

It’s always difficult to envisage a building or the re-development of an area without a site visit. To get more details so that you can understand the concerns of Waterfront Watch, we have arranged two sessions down on the Waterfront at Site 10. Come along and see for yourself what is planned.

Wednesday February 18 2015, 12.30 – 1.30 pm

Meet at the Wharf Police Office, North Kumutoto on either of these days. Look out for Committee member, Katie Underwood, who will explain what is planned for where.

Submissions required by December 18 2014 on plans for the North Kumutoto Precinct Project.
