    • 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.

    • Editorial: What About The Creche?
      • 10 Aug 2008
      • Mt Victoria Residents Association
      • The Dominion Post printed an article on the sale of Crossways yesterday, which noted that the historic property had been sold. But absent from the newspaper was any discussion about the fate of Mt Victoria’s creche, which will need to vacate Crossways by the beginning of October.The Wellington City Council has been steadfastly opposed to keeping Crossways as a community centre, despite its importance to Mt Victoria.

    • Crossways is lost

      • Keep Crossways Community House
      • The Crossways Community Trust is disappointed that the Crossways House has been sold to a higher bidder, depriving Mount Victoria of its community centre.

    • Crossways Is Lost
      • 8 Aug 2008
      • Mt Victoria Residents Association
      • Despite the thousands of hours of volunteer work, a million dollars in fundraising and the efforts of a whole community, the Presbyterian Church has decided to sell Crossways to another buyer.The Church announced today that they had accepted an offer of $1.31 million from an un-named purchaser who will convert the building back into a family home. While we are consoled that Crossways is unlikely to be demolished, it’s a sad end to three decades of community heritage.The Church’s actions - and the Council’s inaction - have been roundly condemned by many commentators.

    • Thursday night at the Forum

      • Save Crossways campaign
      • Last night the community gathered at a public forum organised by the Mt Victoria Residents Association to listen to invited speakers and discuss how to proceed with saving Crossways. We also took the opportunity to thank the Councillors, council officers and the St Andrews church for all their hard work to hammer out a compromise that will allow the community the time to fund-raise. The meeting passed a resolution that a joint committee be formed between the Save Crossways group and the Residents Association, which will be tasked with gathering nominations for a Crossways community trust, and reporting back to the community within three weeks. We'll post the full text of the resolution as soon as we can, and some details on how you can nominate people to the Trust.

      • Save Crossways campaign
      • At today's Strategy & Policy Committee meeting, the Council voted to give Crossways a 12 month reprieve by providing some interim funding to St Andrews. This will allow enough time for the community to form a trust, put together a plan to re-invent Crossways for the 21st Century, and conduct some serious fund-raising.

This will allow enough time for the community to form a trust, put together a plan to re-invent Crossways for the 21st Century, and conduct some serious fund-raising. It's not the three years we asked for, but it's fair, reasonable, and - most of all - achievable. It's a fantastic outcome! Our heart-felt thanks go to St Andrews for their flexibility and genuine commitment to finding a workable compromise, and to the Council who have allowed the community the time to re-invent our community house. We'll post more information about what needs to happen next as soon as we can.

      • As well as talking to the Mayor, the Save Crossways group is holding a three-way meeting between the Council, the Presbyterian Church and community representatives, to see if there is some common ground and room for compromise. We hope there is - after all, the community and the church have a long history together in Mt Victoria.
