Wellington City Council is considering a plan to ban cars from the inner city by 2025.
A Notice of Motion by councillor Tamatha Paul is understood to have gained the support of a majority of councillors and will pass at a council meeting on Thursday.
The motion commits the council to pursue a fossil fuel-free centre city and asks for council officers to write a report investigating how the policy could be applied.
While details would be ironed out by council officers, Paul said she hoped for a ban on all private vehicles in key inner-city streets, with only electric delivery vehicles and buses allowed
They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.
After this incident I can wholeheartedly recommend safety helmets as one of the best investments you can ever make.
