Kia ora koutou.

As part of the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre upgrade, we will be removing a Holm Oak tree which is located on the Rintoul Street side of the centre.

This will be removed on Tuesday 27 July by our contractor and there will be stop/go traffic management in place during the day.

The tree is causing damage to the building as well as the pavement and landscaping areas. It is a pedestrian hazard due to the uneven ground and the roots compromise utility services and the building structure.
The branches have also grown through the LV overhead power lines.

The wood from the tree will go to a local woodworker.

Wellington Mayor Andy Foster has declared a local state of emergency from 3.30pm today (Tuesday 29 June).
The emergency declaration is to allow for the pre-emptive evacuation of properties in Breaker Bay that are expected to take the brunt of the Southerly swell and storm expected at high tide tonight (around 9pm).

The area of concern that are to be evacuated are:

- Breaker Bay Road between numbers 53 and 194.

Mayor Foster says advice from the MetService New Zealand and NIWA in the past few hours indicates that southerly swells of 6 metres or more could present a significant risk to life and property if they overtop areas alongside the South Coast – as they did in April 2020 and in 2013.

Mayor Foster says he is advised that we need to have residents evacuated from these areas before the situation turns dangerous for residents and emergency services.

Residents are asked to be clear of these areas by no later than 6pm this evening.

There will be road blocks at the Wahine Memorial Park and the Pass of Branda – at the northern and southern entrances to Breaker Bay - after that time to prevent people entering the area.

The local state of emergency – declared under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act – will be lifted as soon as it no longer required.

People who are evacuated are asked to stay with family and friends outside the evacuation zones in the first instance.

If people are stuck, they can contact the Wellington City Council on 499-4444.

The photo is from April 2020 when a large swell hits the south coast during Alert Level 2 lockdown.
