As Wellington City grows, how does the Labour-led government envisage balancing a range of competing needs across the city – economic, environmental, social and historical – without any one area dominating the others?

Come along and hear how Grant sees the evolving future of Wellington and in particular Thorndon, Wellington’s oldest inner-city suburb, during a time of accelerating change in housing, urban amenities, public transport, roading, infrastructure, population growth, employment, and government services.

Thorndon School Rebuild Project – Update March 2018

Thorndon School Community Consultation Meeting

Thorndon School Rebuild

Click here to visit the Thorndon School website for more information.

After a number of years the Thorndon School Rebuild Project is finally starting. We believe this project will create an amazing community resource and we are excited to finally be beginning. The project will be taking place over the next 18 months. We are very conscious of the stresses that this rebuild project will place on our students and staff, as well as our neighbours and parent community – and are very keen that any issues that arise are discussed openly and transparently.
