Churton Park is a suburb located 1.5 km north of Johnsonville in the Northern Suburbs of Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. It was established in the 1970s, and has a current population of 6,500 residents. It is now one of the fastest growing greenfields suburbs in Wellington, and is expected to grow to a population of over 12,000 residents in the next 20 years.
Much of the most suitable land for development in the capital lies within the 40 sq km stretching from Ngauranga Gorge north to Porirua.
The Wellington City Council has set up a draft Northern Growth Management Plan to manage development of the area. It sets out a proposed blueprint for where council planners would like to see new housing subdivisions, new or extended roads, and industrial and business developments.
There are no plans for new satellite suburbs. Instead, existing communities will be built on, with the aim of invigorating suburban centres such as Tawa and Newlands.
Churton Park is being developed as a highly desirable residential area. Recently Churton Park has experienced many new developments.
These include the new Amesbury School, Churton Park Village and the Westchester Drive Link Road.
