We Say/You Say: Outdoor spaces

Thomas Campbell Reporter from The Hutt News

Hi neighbours,

What would you like to see in your local council's outdoor space policy?

More concerts, festivals and markets are on the cards for Wellington City if a new plan is approved by council.

The council is reviewing its policies for trading and events in public spaces, making some areas more accessible while placing heavier regulations in others.

26 parks, reserves and carparks are being explored to allow commercial trading, street vendors, tourist activities and recreational equipment to operate.

Commercial activities that might degrade public land, like commercial tours and fitness classes may be charged a licensing fee to cover administration, repairs and maintenance.

A limit on dog walkers and a reduction of footpath signage would be a part of the council's plan to scrap two pieces of existing policy.

Would you support the changes if your local council implemented them? Let us know in the comments below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Hutt News.

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Olive

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Olive, a three year-old mixed female.

"I am an awesome girl who just needs an awesome family! I can be a bit nervous of new situations, so I am looking for a quiet and predictable home with teenagers or adults that can build my confidence and play with me. I would love to spend my days exploring the garden, going on adventures, and after a day of playing with my doggy friends, have a comfy bed to rest up in with lots of cuddles and treats. I am very strong so an experienced owner would suit me best. I would love to go to training classes and work on loose lead walking. If this sounds like you then please contact the canine team."
