How high do we want Wellington to go?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The National Policy Statement on Urban Development released by the Government allows building heights of at least 6 storeys within walkable catchments of the city centre and metropolitan.

The Wellington City Council has proposed that in our most central suburb, Te Aro, we have a “minimum building height of at least 6 storeys” and a “maximum permitted building height to at least 10 storeys.”

In Wellington a lack of available land for development is driving the change towards higher buildings. That could eventually see Te Aro transform from an original working class suburb to a suburb of tower blocks. What do you think?

The Mt Vic tunnel, a long road to nowhere

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Politicians have been been talking about a second Mt Victoria tunnel since the 1950s.
A second tunnel is a key component in Lets Gets Wellington Moving, although progress on that is at a snail's pace.
This week the Green Party came up with a new idea - two new additional tunnels. The Greens would not block the proposed car tunnel but would like to see two more built.
One would be a dedicated walking and cycling tunnel parallel to the existing Mt Victoria car tunnel, the second would be a light rail tunnel in Newtown, near Wellington Zoo.
