Mayor Campbell Barry opened the Les Dalton Dog Park with about 500 people and a large contingent of dogs in attendance, on Saturday.
In opening the park, Barry paid tribute to the late Les Dalton, who came up with the original vision for the idea.
Dalton worked for the Hutt City Council's animal control services team for 43 years, and was a prominent local and national voice about dog control.
Michelle Dalton, Les' daughter, spoke on behalf of the whānau, and said that she knew Les would be looking down on the park with a smile.

Hi Everyone,

FYI; 🚓
"Change to opening hours at the Upper Hutt Police Station"
From 17 May 2021 the opening hours at Upper Hutt Police Station will be changing.

The station will now be open from 9:00am until 5:00pm on weekdays and closed at the weekend.

The decision to change the opening hours was made after an operational review and has been driven by declining demand for service at the front counter in the evenings and on weekends.

It will balance the community’s needs and the welfare and consideration of sole staff members.

“We are committed to delivering a policing service the Upper Hutt community expect and deserve.

Very few members of the public are visiting Upper Hutt Police Station at the weekend or later in the day.

By closing at these times we can instead deploy our staff to times when it is busy,” said Te Awakairangi Hutt Valley Area Commander Inspector Dion Bennett.

The change in hours will not affect the policing service available to the community.

“Police will continue to work and be deployed from the Upper Hutt Police station 24/7. What is changing is the public front counter will be closed on weekends,” said Inspector Bennet.

As part of the review and consultation ahead of the changes community leaders and local iwi from across Upper Hutt were consulted.

This consultation provided valuable insights into how we can work together with the community to ensure they can be safe and feel safe.
“If you need to speak to Police and the matter is not urgent, please come and visit the station Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm.
Alternatively you can ring us anytime on 105 or contact us online at 105.police.govt.nz.

If you need an emergency response please continue to call 111,” said Inspector Bennett.

Hutt dogs get lifetime tag

Plastic dog tags are set to become a thing of the past in Lower Hutt, with the introduction of the One Tag for dog registrations.
The One Tag is a metal tag designed to last a dog's lifetime. Dog owners will still need to pay their annual registration fees, but they can keep using the same tag as long as they live in their council's jurisdiction.
Hutt City Mayor Campbell Barry says the One Tag initiative is being introduced to reduce the amount of plastic waste going to landfills.
Council infrastructure and regulatory committee Deborah Hislop said th council is seeing an increasing number of complaints from customers about sending them a piece of plastic each year which can't be recycled.
"Environmental sustainability is really important to our community, so our systems and processes need to reflect that. We're increasingly moving towards online transactions, so once the One Tags have been sent out this year, we'll be creating less paper waste too."
The One Tag is lightweight yet durable and comes in two sizes – 25mm for small dogs and 35mm for larger dogs. The back of the tag is blank so owners can get it engraved with their dog's name or their contact details if they wish.
Under the Dog Control Act 1996, all dogs are legally required to be registered by the age of three months. Registration is due by July 31 of each year and owners of unregistered dogs may be charged an infringement fee of $300.
Animal Control Officers can access registration records remotely when they are out on patrol to check whether a dog is currently registered.

"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
