How will Wellington fare with fewer new people?

Ben Heather Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington city planners had forecast another 50,000 to 80,000 people would make Wellington City home over the next 30 years.

Wellington city planners had forecast another 50,000 to 80,000 people would make Wellington City home over the next 30 years.
But those predictions have now been thrown up in the air with coronavirus curtailing the movement of people, particularly across national borders. How should Wellington prepare for slower population growth and what will it mean for the future of the city?

Children elsewhere so we septuagenarians are downsizing. Coastal forest plus 20-odd types of planted native trees and ferns mostly over 40 years old. Productive apple and lemon trees and rhubarb and kitchen herbs with space for veges. Sixty steps up from the garage to the first door but we see Mana Island and bigger distant islands from the sunny upstairs living areas.

However, the team seem to be more than happy to be back into it, which is great. I am taking that as a sign they are happy with their work and that we have done a decent job of looking after them and keeping them informed over the last 7 weeks of lockdown.

We are still in an Alert Level, we have our COVID-19 Safety Plan in place and must continue to be vigilant in keeping to the government guidance provided. Being cautious and respecting other people views is important, not just to continue to keep us all safe but also to show respect to everyone’s differing views about where each person is on their COVID-19 journey. Our team understand what is required to follow the Safety Plan to enable them to do their work and interact with clients.

There will be some catching up to do to bring our clients homes and offices back up to scratch. Some of our clients may notice the smell of burning elbow grease over the next couple of weeks!!

We have reminded the team that delivering a quality service must be at the forefront of their minds for every visit. And, we would like to remind our clients and prospective clients that you deserve a quality service, if you are not satisfied, we insist you communicate that, we stand by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you tell us we will put it right.

Be safe, be kind, have a good week.

Wellington's bars will reopen for the first time under alert level 2 on Thursday, and owners are praying for punters to come out in their droves.

Hospitality New Zealand Wellington branch president Matt McLaughlin is fearing for the future of the capital's bars.

"Courtenay Place which, to me, is New Zealand's premier entertainment precinct could be wiped off the face of the Earth in two months, which is really concerning."

There will be strict rules in place, with bar patrons seated, separated by a metre, and served by a single person.

The masked investigators

The Team from Wellington Water

200 meters off-road a stormwater sump overflows and makes a public walking track impassable.

A call goes out.

That call is answered. Tools are carried into the hills of Belmont, the sump cleared of blocked silt, and the track made safe again.

The masked investigators strike again.
