Work not start­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua res­i­dents will not see any de­mo­li­tion work un­der the canopies this sum­mer.

As we re­ported on De­cem­ber 18, a Porirua City Coun­cil report noted that 8 Cob­ham Court – which houses the i-Site and four other ten­ants – would be de­mol­ished as part of the city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion project, with works be­gin­ning over the fol­low­ing three months.

How­ever, a coun­cil spokesper­son has since told Kapi-Mana News such work would ‘‘def­i­nitely not’’ oc­cur in the coming months, with fur­ther de­sign work to be car­ried out.

Some very small ini­tial phys­i­cal works may oc­cur be­fore the end of the fi­nan­cial year in June.

Large- scale de­mo­li­tion would re­quire fur­ther in­vest­ment, from both the coun­cil and ex­ter­nal sources.

Kapi-Mana News will look to run fur­ther sto­ries on the city cen­tre up­grade, time­lines for 2013, and what it means for re­tail­ers, vis­i­tors and res­i­dents, in the near fu­ture.
