2017 - Community & Stakeholder Workshops
In March and April we sought feedback at a mid-point in our scenario development process in a series of community and stakeholder workshops, facilitated by independent research company UMR.
We wanted to check we’re heading in the right direction. We also wanted to get people’s views on how we should present a short list of scenarios to the public later in the year. The workshops were not about making decisions. They were another opportunity for LGWM to listen and be guided by community input.
We outlined a range of possible interventions that could be made in each of four focus areas:
- Better public transport
- Improving the state highway
- Active transport improvements (walking and cycling)
- Managing travel demand
More information and background about how we arrived at the four focus areas is covered in more detail here.
In each focus area we listed what’s already planned and possible levels of further intervention – from not doing much to doing a great deal. We also examined how each of the focus areas would be just one part of a possible transport solution, how the focus areas work together, and how they would impact on each other.
Attendees discussed some of the compromises and trade-offs that would need to be made to develop solutions. And they told us what kind of information they want to see when we present a short list of scenarios to the public. This includes things such as:
- Evidence that supports each scenario
- Which interventions we have rejected and why
- Descriptions of land use and planning constraints
- Costs for each scenario
- How each scenario fits into an integrated and holistic plan for the city and the region
- More information about specific interventions

2016 - Public Engagement
During April and May 2016, we met, talked with and surveyed a wide range of people, groups and organisations across the city and region.
In all, over 10,000 people joined the conversation. If you weren’t among them, there will be other opportunities to find out more and get involved.
We commissioned UMR to produce a comprehensive report encompassing results from different sources.
- Two focus groups
- A phone survey (750 people)
- Greater Wellington Regional Council research panel survey (631 people)
- Wellington City Council research panel survey (643 people)
- Street survey (1000 people)
- Let’s Get Wellington Moving website survey (2503)
- LGWM online image survey (25,000 responses)
Urban design and transport principles have been developed which will help us plan and assess possible solutions and options over coming months.
