Live Wellington wants all people to have warm, dry affordable homes in thriving communities. We want to do this in ways that meet the needs of both existing and new residents, so that we build on the strengths of both and create a great future together. Council and government could start by asking communities “how can you welcome more people” and then work out the answer together.
To deal with the immediate crisis, we need to focus on making good use of underutilised land as a priority. This means we can create more housing more quickly and have these conversations about the longer term.
