With the final passing of the revocation of pedestrian status of Manners Mall and creation of shared space in lower Cuba Street at the Council meeting on Friday, December 11, 2009, one battle has ended.
Wellington City Council makes the final decision today with a rubber stamp approving the revocation of Manners Mall after 30 years of being closed to vehicles. The cost is $11.5 million at a time when many ratepayers are struggling to pay their bills.
An open space for the last thirty years the Council is proposing to put buses through Manners Mall. If you prefer open space, now is the time to speak up and let your councillors know your thoughts on this matter. Don't diver, do it now or lose to the bus company.
Hi – I’m sorry to say we lost this battle today.
Those voting against opening Manners mall to buses were:
Councillors Bryan Pepperell, Leonie Gill, Hayley Wain and Jo Coughlan
