What will regional hubs mean for Wellington City?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Labour is planning to build regional state service hubs in areas like Lower Hutt and Kāpiti .

State Services Minister Chris Hipkins says hubs outside main centres such as Wellington and Auckland cities would take pressure off existing offices.

Wellington’s public sector employs about 27,000, while there are about 37,000 in the private sector. A Cabinet paper tabled last year revealed the State Services Commission wanted to “reduce the footprint” of government workers in the Wellington and Auckland regions, and move agencies elsewhere when possible.

What do you think of moving state servants out of Wellington City?
