Doing density well in central Wellington

Better public transport, safer streets, more green spaces?

Dr Roger Blakeley, Cr Tamatha Paul and Dr Paul Blaschke join us to discuss how the recent Gehl report on Wellington's urban design could drive positive change, at a public talk on 5 May 2022.

This will also be available via livestream at

A recent review by the Copenhagen-based Gehl group provided possible direction for Wellington's future public spaces, transport, and green spaces.

As the Wellington City Council reviews the District Plan and other fundamental city plans, it's timely to discuss how this report can feed into that thinking.

Hear from:

  • Dr Roger Blakeley, chair of Greater Wellington Regional Council’s transport committee
  • Cr Tamatha Paul, Wellington city’s Pukehinau / Lambton ward, deputy chair of the council’s planning and environment committee
  • Dr Paul Blaschke, environment consultant, who has done a detailed study of Wellington Central’s green spaces.


All welcome - this talk is organised by LIVE WELLington and supported by Inner City Wellington
