Tremendous work by WCC

Chris from Hataitai

Here's a neat bit of work by WCC, in Para St Miramar. Residents wanted the big tree in the foreground of the first photo cut down as it obscured their vision when reversing out of their driveway. I was against removing a mature tree which is one of a long line. Solution: move the footpath away from the tree!

The second photo shows the view from other end of the works. The new kerbline simply extends the previous build-out at the zebra crossing, improving visibility and safety for everyone . One car park lost, one tree saved!

Poll: Is it time to revive Wellington's flag?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

It's unmistakable: the trireme-like ship, the flying dragon-dolphin-fish, the English flags. Quintessentially Wellington. Right?
The new mayor of Wellington and a city councillor want to see the revival of the city's flag and coat of arms around the city in help foster "civic pride". But, others say the flag is "a relic of the past" that fell into disuse for a reason. What do you think of the flag? www.stuff.co.nz...
