In your community

Greater Wellington is actively involved in the region's communities.

Our commitment to environmental, economic, social and cultural wellbeings sees us connect with the region's schools, businesses, households, iwi groups, community groups, non-government organisations, emergency services, health providers, central government agencies and others.

Resilience, safety and sustainable practices shape our own Council culture and our key interactions with others.
