COVID-19: What we're doing

The team from Hutt City Council

4.30pm UPDATE:

Laings Road Admin Building - From this evening all facilities will close, including the front desk at Laings Road Admin Building. Our resources will be redirected to our virtual contact centre.

Parking - Hutt City Council will stop enforcing parking charges across Lower Hutt for the next 48 hours. This will enable people to access essential services in our city, and allow people to plan for our move to level 4, without any charge for parking.

4pm Monday 23 March

To help control the spread of COVID-19, all Hutt City Council facilities are temporarily closed. This includes swimming pools, libraries, gyms, community hubs, computer clubhouses, museums, community halls, playgrounds, parks and sportsfields.

Rubbish collection is an essential service and especially during situations like COVID-19. For Lower Hutt this means that your kerbside rubbish and recycling collection service will continue. Due to reduced staffing on the trucks (to enable staff to work safely and at distance from one another) the service may be a little slower than usual, but it will still be collected. So please be patient. This also means that recycling may not always be able to be sorted as it has been and in that case may have to be taken to landfill for a period. Normal recycle processing will resume as soon as possible.

Community recycling stations – these will continue to be open for cardboard and paper. These stations are cleared by a front loading truck so there is no handling by people. Please note however that if too much material is left at these recycling stations and especially if rubbish is left there they will be closed. So please only use these for what you need.

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
