Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

A new kiosk op­po­site the i-Site in Cob­ham Court is al­most com­plete and will ac­com­mo­date sev­eral small busi­nesses.

Porirua City Coun­cil an­nounced last week that The Lit­tle Goat and The Hot Wafel, two pop­u­lar food car­a­vans that had had suc­cess in the cen­tral busi­ness district re­cently, would ten­ant the space.

Though a move-in date has not been con­firmed, the two busi­nesses are likely to move in shortly af­ter work is com­pleted this month.

The coun­cil is in­vest­ing $21 mil­lion over 10 years into a cen­tral busi­ness district revitalisation plan.

Re­mov­ing the canopies last year was the first big move and the next was the work in the city cen­tre.

The coun­cil is in­vest­ing $21 mil­lion over 10 years into a cen­tral busi­ness district revitalisation plan.

The first stage of the upgrade was cen­tred around the Ha­gley St end of the area, the se­cond fo­cused on the trans­for­ma­tion of the cen­tral me­dian, and the third was to re­con­fig­ure the space where the kiosk is si­t­u­ated.

The kiosk site will also host mod­ern pub­lic toi­lets, re­plac­ing the toi­let block in Lyt­tel­ton Ave.

Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil will also be in­stalling an­other bus shel­ter next to the ex­ist­ing one to re­place the seat­ing that was avail­able as part of the toi­let block.

Work on the cen­tre of Cob­ham Court started in June 2015 and 29 car parks were re­moved to ac­com­mo­date the changes.

The es­ti­mated cost for the CBD sec­tion of the pro­ject is $960,000.
