The agenda includes –

The Salvation Army are coming to discuss their plans for a new development on Normanby, Riddiford and Donald MacLean Streets. Read more about the plans… They are keen to obtain feedback and answer any questions.  This is one of the biggest property developments in our suburb for many years, and the discussion should be of interest to all in Newtown.

The Gambling Venues Policy review closes at 5pm on Friday 22 May.  We will be discussing the issue, and hope to have the input of a Council Officer familiar with the topic.  We will then be looking to form a small group to work quickly to write a submission based on our discussion.  If you are interested, please come – or please let us know by emailing on newtownwellington@gmail.com

Discussion on the future of Keep Newtown Clean.

If you have other items, or questions, please email us, as above.


Welcome to the new Newtown Residents Association website.

This website is intended to provide pertinent news and event details for the Association and Residents of Newtown.

The Association in Brief
The Newtown Residents Association exists to promote the interests and community of the residents of the area. We are a group of local residents who gather together to share views on a wide range of matters that might impact on the community in which we live, work and play. Amongst other matters, the Association organises the highly successful Annual Newtown Festival, patronises the Newtown History Project and has a close relationship with Wellington City Council in many matters pertaining to the area.

Join in and be heard!
Association meetings are open to the public and may be attended by anyone. Should voting be necessary on any issue, only the vote of members will be counted. Membership is available to all (16+) residents of Newtown, Mt Cook, Berhampore and those who have an interest in the future well-being of Newtown. Membership is currently by payment of a gold coin (NZ) donation.
