#1A longer airport runway is the idea that we have received most feedback about

Film & tech industries – 3 years ago #
The problem with this proposal is the details don't match the statement. The details of the plan talk more about supporting tourism than it does about IT. It mentions Positively Wellington Tourism, Events, Positively Wellington Venues, Destination Wellington, and city innovation projects - only this last one might vaguely be interpreted as IT or Film related. I don't feel the problem in the tech industry is lack of funding, it's lack of leadership on the part of the organizations.
A cycling network – 3 years ago #
This is essential to Wgtn being 'the' compact city where lifestyle and ease of living in a vibrant city are central attractors to visitors and new citizens. It so many spin offs - environment, health, social networks etc... less hui, more dui - GET ON WITH IT!!!
Wellington Urban Growth Plan – 3 years ago #
It is necessary for social and environmental reasons. We need to keep our unique compactness and walkability.
The New Zealand Festival – 3 years ago #
This is a comparatively small investment which will have huge benefits to our civic pride, arts community and for Wellington.
Revitalise the Civic Square precinct – 3 years ago #
The 'Music Hub' concept would certain provide added value to the Town Hall, moving it away from a 'conference centre' towards an actual cultural treasure that it utilized for its proper purpose: as one of the great acoustic venues in New Zealand. Moreover, it houses the only fit-for-purpose chamber music venue in Wellington.
Ocean Exploration Centre – 3 years ago #
It would provide a unique opportunity to learn about the coastal environment on our doorstep that is inaccesible to non-divers
A longer airport runway – 3 years ago #
I am opposed. Wellington is small on the international scale, and does not have the population for many airlines to see financial benefit in stopping here. Also, flying is the worst form of travel from a carbon emissions perspective. I would rather see the money spent on improving our rail services between Wellington and Auckland, and upgrading them to a higher speed and frequency, so they can better compete with air travel.
Civic Square is a treasure, and the way the City to Sea bridge connects it to the waterfront - fabulous. Yes, please, earthquake strengthen existing buildings, but don't try and 'offset' costs by leasing the right to build on Jack Illott Green. No, its not a well-used space BUT importantly it provides a feeling of spaciousness, and great view-lines out to and connectedness with the harbour, which means any building taller than one storey will get in the way. A performing music centre in the town hall and MFC: great. Cafes around the Square - sure. Keep it vibrant and lively.
The festival is fantastic and I do enjoy attending some of the shows but there is only so much discretionary money that people have. I would support this if the economy was going well but it is not at the moment.
Regenerating the city centre, and managing / supporting growth sensibly, is key to allowing Wellington to grow whilst preserving the features that make Wellington great.
