Wellington Girls’ College

As part of the redevelopment project at Wellington Girls’ College, contractors will shortly begin construction on a temporary village for teaching and learning, to be located on the College’s field.

You may have noticed the establishment of safety fencing around the field, before construction works scale up in July.

Contractors will be accessing the site through the gates on Hobson Street, so you may notice an increase in heavy vehicle movement in the area, as well as some related traffic management measures. The two existing on-street parking spaces directly outside the access gate will be removed, and there may be some impacts to other on-street parking for short periods while large items are delivered to the site, but these will be managed on a case by case basis. We expect the majority of work on the temporary village to be complete by mid-September.

We are of course working to minimise the impact on local residents while carrying out this necessary work. We appreciate your support and understanding as we continue the school’s redevelopment.

If you have any questions or concerns about traffic management, please email site manager Paul Wilkinson at or by calling him on 021 324 696.

If you’d like to discuss the project in general, please don’t hesitate to contact

Representatives from the Thorndon Residents Association recently attended the Our City Tomorrow community workshop and below is the presentation from the workshop. All feedback from the workshop is currently being analysed by Council officers and TRA will keep the community informed of progress.
