Claims waterfront decision rushed

Nov 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Radio News

The Wellington waterfront is to get another commercial building following a Wellington City Council vote yesterday.

Consultation on the development of what is known as Site 9 began in 2013, and final submissions were heard this earlier this year.

At a full council meeting this week councillors voted to give the project the green light, although two felt the decision was being rushed.

Councillor Diane Calvert says council committees usually have a week to consider recommendations before voting on them in full council meetings.

The project will be developed by Willis Bond and Co, who will hold the land on a 125-year lease.

Councillors Diane Calvert and Iona Pannet were the only councillors who voted against the proposal going ahead.
