We’re in the process of updating our District Plan and will be undertaking a plan change that addresses the risk from natural hazards.  

It’s called Plan Change 47 and has three distinct areas of focus: the Wellington Fault, Mangaroa Peatlands and Area of High Slope Hazards. 

The proposed changes impact some properties in Upper Hutt. For example, the location of the Wellington Fault is now better understood and the location and extent has changed in some areas. 

We want to give you a heads up about what's being proposed, ahead of a formal Plan Change in 2022. 

Letters have been sent to impacted landowners with all the details and the information is also available online at

Have your say by 29 October 2021.
