Do you support taking cars out of the Golden Mile?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Wellington City Council is looking at removing traffic from the central city.

Under the proposal, all general traffic from the popular thoroughfare could be removed.
Access to many side streets would be closed off, while loading zones and taxi stands would be moved to side streets.

The proposal has resulted in an angry response from business owners, who believe it could result in businesses closing.

Our first State House

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

David and Mary McGregor took occupation of the first State House in New Zealand today (September18) in 1937.

The house at 12 Fife Lane Miramar had three bedrooms and one bathroom. The opening attracted a large crowd and a lot of media attention. The house was eventually sold to the McGregors in the early 1950s. They lived there until the early 1980s and are seen in the attached photo in 1978.
