The Sustainability Strategy 2012-2022 lets you know what the Upper Hutt City Council proposes to do about some of the key sustainability issues we are facing over the next ten years. You can view or download the strategy from the Resources & Links section.

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 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.

Browse the Resources & Links section for more information related to sustainability in Upper Hutt.

Reporting on the strategy

Reporting on the sustainability strategy action plan occurs through Councils Policy Committee. Policy committee agendas (which contain the reports) and minutes can be viewed on our ‘Policy Committee‘ page.

The Sustainability Strategy will be reviewed in early 2018 and Council will be inviting the community to provide input.

If you have any questions or queries relating to the Sustainability Strategy or the associated projects and initiatives, please contact us.
