Re­design de­ci­sions im­mi­nent

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

A land­scaped site, with widened paved path and grass area will re­place the de­mol­ished i-Site in Septem­ber, Porirua City Coun­cil says.

That will be a tem­po­rary mea­sure un­til a per­ma­nent land­scape de­sign is im­ple­mented as part of the city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion pro­ject.

The coun­cil is to con­sider pro­pos­als for the next ma­jor city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion pro­ject at an up­com­ing Te Komiti meet­ing.

Also due for demolition is the for­mer toi­let block and bus seat­ing area in Lyt­tel­ton Ave.

Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil will in­stall a new bus shel­ter by mid-July. It will look like the one next door, in­stalled last year. It will be the same size and the pan­els will also fea­ture rugby icons. The new toi­lets are be­hind the kiosk in Cob­ham Court.

Mean­while, Porirua City Coun­cil re­ceived 1138 sub­mis­sions to the draft an­nual plan, with hear­ings held over two days re­cently.

The liv­ing wage group made 863 sub­mis­sions. It is ask­ing the coun­cil to pay its em­ploy­ees at least $19.25 an hour. The re­main­ing 275 sub­mis­sions were from the public and or­gan­i­sa­tions on a range of top­ics.

The an­nual plan will be adopted on June 29, with coun­cil­lors to de­cide on the level of rates rises for the new fi­nan­cial year. The rise could be as low as 3.6 per cent or as high as 6 per cent.
