WCC are running discussion / question & answer sessions this Sunday in Brooklyn in three sessions (from 10.30am; 11.30am and 12.30pm then two sessions in Owhiro Bay later on Sunday).

Whether you consider the landfill an asset or an intermediate step towards some thing we can do better at (perhaps doing away with in the future?) we urge you to come down to listen to options and have your say. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday...wellington.govt.nz...

Hello, our latest update demolition of the old Harrison Street flats by WCC (and their contractors Naylor Love). The initial securing of the site and removal of external asbestos soffit panels (under the roof line) has been completed.

We have assurances from WCC officers that the contractors will have strict traffic controls and vehicle management plans so as not to interrupt vehicle flows around the Brooklyn Bus Hub down Harrison St and entering Cleveland St. While there is likely to be heavy demolition waste (and tradespeople's) vehicles coming back and forth through the Brooklyn village, we do not expect huge numbers of vehicles in the grand scheme of things.

However demolition has now come to a halt and we have been informed that the demolition completion date has been pushed back several weeks. So August sometime now. We are not completely sure as to why there is a delay but do note the building has been sealed up (boards over windows) and actual demolition appears to be scheduled while Brooklyn School is "out" with July holidays. Curious timing. We will monitor with interest.

27/03/19: update on proposed water reservoirs in Bell Rd (Brooklyn) and Prince of Wales Park (Mt Cook/Brooklyn fringe)

Carl from Brooklyn Residents Association Incorporated

More news on the proposed water reservoirs in and around Brooklyn. The decision on this appears to be "up in the air a bit" due to substantial cost increases. The original price estimate of $30M (or so) was for both reservoir installations.

The decision on this appears to be "up in the air a bit" due to substantial cost increases. The original price estimate of $30M (or so) was for both reservoir installations. The Bell Road reservoir -10M lt - was to replace the original 100y old reservoir with a replacement reservoir - has been delayed (at least) two years and the proposed larger new reservoir in Prince of Wales Parks 35M lt has had its initial price estimate of $29.5M to $58.2M. So don't expect the diggers to start work anytime soon...www.stuff.co.nz...

Hello

Another parking "win" for Brooklyn businesses and residents, after so many car parks were removed due to the Brooklyn Bus Hub. WCC were going to designate these two spaces on Jefferson St, Brooklyn as "Residents Parking" only with no public consultation. We understand some locals were pressing for these on the back of other "Residents Only" car parks being removed due to the Cleveland St bus stops.

GBRAI, acting on feedback from Brooklyn businesses & other local residents, successfully got WCC to change this to P30 from Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm. That way they become usable for clients of Wing on Chan, Jo's Bakery, Khana Kazana, Loundes Electrical & Brooklyn library users.

Our thanks to locals - you know who you are - and to WCC for the compromise.
