Sustainability Strategy

Our naturally beautiful environment reinforces the ‘gateway to the great outdoors’ perception of the city, and we need to ensure future growth enhances our amenity value while meeting the population’s needs.

The Sustainability Strategy 2012-2022(PDF, 2MB) action plan projects and initiatives range from river restoration and community education, through to reducing the city’s energy costs and providing home eco-design advice. These projects and initiatives are intended to integrate with other key Council policy and plans and support the creation of a more resilient community for the people of Upper Hutt, both now and in the future.
