    • Earthquake Update
      • 22 Jul 2013
      • St Andrews on the Terrace Presbyterian Church
      • St Andrew's was closed today (Monday) but we have been given the OK by our engineer from Opus International and are pleased to announce that we will be open tomorrow as usual. We have quite a bit of plaster and paint dust in the church but we will be getting to work to clean that all up in the morning. There are a few surface areas of damage but nothing structural and we are delighted that the building which was strengthened in 2007 behaved exactly as it should have.

    • No Contingency Plans for Creche
      • 2 Sep 2008
      • Mt Victoria Residents Association
      • In response to a request under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, the Wellington City Council has confirmed that there are no contingency plans to relocate the Crossways Creche:“There are no contingency plans drawn up regarding relocating the Crossways Community Creche to the Bandoliers site. A report regarding the possibility of permitting creche activities on the Town Belt is due to be presented to the Strategy and Policy Committee in late September/early October for decision by Councillors.”The Council’s own estimates show that an investment of around $380,000 will be required to bring the Bandoliers building up to the required standard for an early childhood educational facility. As the work is extensive - new retaining walls, paths, fences, DDT removal, toilets, storage facilities and much more - it seems likely that many months of effort will be required. However no plan for either conducting the work or to manage the disruption to the creche exists.This is clearly unsatisfactory. Council officers were opposed to the retention of Crossways by the community, and at all stages in the process made recommendations that no Council resources be put into the retention of our community house. These same staff members have had nearly 18 months in which to plan for alternatives, yet it appears that they have done absolutely nothing to ensure our community creche can continue operating once Crossways is sold.Families with children at the creche should feel justifiable outrage at how they have been abandoned by Council officers.
