The Mt Victoria Residents Association is an active advocate on behalf of our community, aiming to further the interests of our neighbourhood with local and central government. We’ve been doing this work for decades, promoting the needs of residents and opposing inappropriate development in our neighbourhood.
The things we care about
The MVRA is actively involved in promoting the interests of our community in a number of areas:
- We make submissions on issues affecting Mt Victoria, such as proposals to have a Wellington super-city Council, Wellington City and Regional Councils’ draft long-term and annual plans, the Town Belt and transport plans. You’ll find copies on this website.
- We actively monitor and make submissions to the Council on resource consent issues, particularly demolitions, that affect local residents, We have worked with the Council to put in place in the District Plan rules and guidelines to protect the heritage of our unique inner-city neighbourhood. This was in response to the wholesale destruction of Mt Victoria’s heritage through inappropriate development in the 1970s and 1980s.
- We work with other groups – such as the Mt Victoria Historical Society and the Save the Basin Campaign – on issues of common concern.
