Planning well underway ahead of protest activity in Wellington next week

Police are advising people to plan ahead and expect possible disruptions, with protest activity expected to take place in Wellington next week.

Several groups are planning protest activity, including a march to Parliament grounds on Thursday 28 September.

Police have been planning for these events, particularly taking into account managing movement of large numbers of people and vehicles.

Police acknowledge the right to protest, and our role is to ensure the safety of all as well as upholding the law.

We have been in contact with organisers from the various groups and set clear expectations for peaceful and lawful activity.

Police are mindful of community concerns given disruptions experienced last year during the occupation of Parliament grounds.

Police will continue to provide updates leading up to Thursday’s activities with additional information and advice.

Road closures around parliament

Traffic management will be put in place as part of planning to facilitate protest activity. More details about road closures will be provided early next week.

Parking will also be restricted, so Police advise anyone travelling into the city to make alternative arrangements or use public transport wherever possible.

While there will be some disruptions, our aim is to ensure residents and the wider public can continue to go about their daily business as uninterrupted as possible.
