Land banking in Wellington

Jessica MacDonald made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Jessica MacDonald to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Jessica MacDonald

Dear Wellington City Council,

Please consider this a request under the Official Information Act.

I'd like to request a list of land banked properties in Wellington–both vacant lots as well as any unused or vacant buildings. If these records are available I'd like to also request the address, size of the property, RV, annual rates, name of the person/s or company listed on the title, any contact details, and the period it has been vacant for (if a building).

Yours faithfully,

Jessica MacDonald

I don't think there is any answer for this. An owner may not be developing a property for any number of reasons. How would you demonstrate that the owner is doing it for speculative reasons? I suspect you can't.

Hi Mr Rogers, thanks for that tip. I'll amend my to not be
specific to land banking and more general about vacant land.

Cheers!

Dear Wellington City Council,

Just following up to clarify on my previous OIA request. I'd like the list of vacant land or properties, and relevant details, as per my previous request. I'm aware the council may not deem them to be 'land banked' and may not recognise that as an official status.

Yours faithfully,

Jessica MacDonald
