Newlands Fire Station

The Team from Wellington City Council

The Council fully supports the Newlands volunteer firefighters – they do a fantastic job in both the Newlands and wider Wellington community.
We want to work together so Newlands can retain the volunteer brigade while also creating the new park that everyone has been looking forward to.

Our three Takapu-Northern Ward Councillors Jill Day, Jenny Condie, and Malcolm Sparrow, together with Ōhāriu MP Greg O’Connor, met with Newlands Volunteer Fire Brigade members this morning to talk about how the Council can help them secure a new site for a fire station.

It is important to acknowledge that while we can look for locations, the decision about whether a new volunteer fire station is built in the area will be made by Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ). Council staff have worked with FENZ over the last year to find alternatives and have offered a number of sites in the wider Newlands area.

South Wairarapa - Current Restrictions

The Team from Wellington Water

After a planned water shutdown to install new treatment equipment for Greytown's Memorial Park bore yesterday, we were restoring supply when a power cut occurred.

The power cut affected the Waiohine Treatment plant, which supplies water to both Greytown and Featherston. The Waiohine reservoirs were already quite low, as they had been meeting demand during the planned water outage. Although the Memorial Park bore was operational during the power cut, it was not meeting Greytown's demand.

We organised water tankers to supplement the water remaining in the reservoirs. Fortunately power was restored at 9.30pm. This allowed us to begin re-filling the Waiohine-fed reservoirs for Featherston and Greytown.

Thank you to all residents who are responding to the request to cut back water use, especially outdoors, and to the Greytown Fire Service for helping spread the word.

While the reservoirs are being re-filled, the total outdoor water ban (in Featherston & Greytown) is still in effect. We will look to lift this ban when operations continue as normal. We are anticipating this will be lifted tomorrow at 9am. We will confirm this tomorrow morning.

From 10 December total outdoor water ban applies in Martinborough.
