Dog survey closing soon

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

There's still time to complete our local dog owner survey!

We want to hear from local kūri/dog owners to help us better understand how Wellingtonians use our dog services and how they could be improved.

It only takes 5 minutes to complete and closes on Friday 26 February. Head to: wellington.govt.nz...

Wellington Central Library to get new name: Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

When Wellington’s Central Library finally re-opens in 2025, it will be under a new official name: Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui.
The name has been used as a secondary title for several years, but will now be recognised as the official name of the library as part of a commitment to consult with mana whenua throughout the design process.
Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui approximately translates to ‘The window to the wider world’.
In October 2020, city councillors voted unanimously to fix and upgrade the earthquake-prone building, which has been closed since March 2019, and officers were told to explore design options.

Water restrictions eased across the region

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington’s sprinkler ban has been lifted– but with sporadic rain forecast for winter residents still need to avoid wasting water.
The restrictions were put in place for the Hutt Valley, South Wairarapa, Wellington city and Porirua in mid-February as water usage soared during the summer months.
From Tuesday, residents in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington city can again use sprinklers and irrigation systems, Wellington Water said. In Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa people can do so every second day, as is usual.
Most of the Wellington region’s drinking water comes from rivers and the Waiwhetu aquifer under the Hutt Valley. River levels fell to 90 per cent before the sprinkler ban.
Meanwhile, people in the Wairarapa town of Carterton still have to boil their water after E. coli bacteria was found in the water supply on March 12.
