Latest Update

Malcolm Sparrow from Councillor Malcolm Sparrow - Wellington City Council

Here's the latest update from Wellington EOC (Emergency Operations Centre):

"Wellington CBD is open except for limited areas around Featherston Street.

Wellington's central business district (CBD) will be largely open for business on Tuesday 15 November.

Employees are encouraged to check with their employers to see whether their workplace is open tomorrow.

Train services have not yet resumed but bus services are operating.

Wellington City Council has closed most of Featherston Street and a number of associated areas for safety reasons until potential falling debris concerns are addressed.

The forecast high winds and heavy rain are another factor which has underpinned the decision to close these specific areas.

It is expected this closure will be for a short period of time while necessary work is completed.

At this point these are considered to be isolated issues, and not generally related to the structural integrity of buildings.

The City Council will be working closely with building owners to address issues of potential threats to public safety, and will work to open up areas as soon as practicable."

2017 Santa bear

Craig from Johnsonville

Hi everyone,
Unfortunately, our son's beloved Santa bear got too close to the fireplace and has been damaged. We're reaching out to see if anyone might have a 2017 Santa bear that they no longer want? We are happy to pay for it.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Rubbish and recycling delays

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Due to a nationwide driver shortage, we’re still seeing some delays with our rubbish and recycling collections.

If rubbish or recycling has not been collected on your street on your normal collection day, please leave it out and it will be picked up the next day

Please note collections now start at 7am, so your rubbish and recycling may be picked up earlier than usual. Make sure you put everything out before 7am on the day of collection, or after 7pm the night before.

Thank you for your patience Pōneke 💛
