Regenerating Wellington's waterfront

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article details the processes involved in the redevelopment of the waterfront area of Wellington, New Zealand. A partnership was set up between the city council and the harbour board, who established a statutory authority and a special development zone. The article examines the planning and management issues raised by the scheme in the light of the impact of ideas from the political right in such schemes. As a result the redevelopment has tended to be market led. The article examines the role of private sector investment and links it to recent experiences in London, Sydney and North America. It questions the priorities of such a scheme. -S.Tanner
