These large invasive birds are a problem in the Wellington region because they eat and destroy newly germinated seedlings, which sometimes means entire crops need to be re-sown.
We need to protect our region’s environment and economic wellbeing from damage, which is why we aim to remove rooks from our region by 2029.

Come talk to the team about the proposed design each Saturday at the Naenae Market from now till November 6.
View and feedback on the proposed designs at:
• Naenae Library
• Coco Pop Up community space (Hillary Court)
• Online hutt.city/naenaepool
We are keen to know:
• What do you like about the proposed design?
• We want to understand what the most important elements of the new facility are for you?
• The proposed design allows for many activities. Which ones are you most keen on?
• Tell us what else you would like us to know about the future Naenae Pool and Fitness Centre?
The first look at the proposed design for the Naenae Pool and Fitness suite is here!
Before we get into detailed design and begin construction, we want to check in with everyone who will be using the pool to make sure we're delivering the best facility possible – for Naenae and Te Awakairangi.
In this draft design, you'll notice features that reflect what the community and aquatic sports users told us they wanted. We're;
🏊♂️ Keeping the 50-metre pool;
🎉 making sure the facility is a place for birthdays, special occasions, and the building is accessible; and
🌴 moving the site position in Walter Mildenhall park to better connect it with Hillary Court.
This is your chance to give feedback so we can ensure this plan for the pool reflects your needs! Let us know what you think 👇
