Definately no Wellington Super City support in the Hutt Valley…

Towards 2040:   Smart Capital  sets out a vision for the future of Wellington City – a vision that builds on the city’s existing strengths – such as its natural beauty, vibrancy, compactness, close-knit communities and great people – while raising the bar higher.

It’s a vision for a city that puts people first – a place that is welcoming and friendly, provides opportunities for all, strong neighbourhoods and communities, and embraces differences and changes.

It’s a vision for a smarter and stronger economy – one that is based on knowledge, skill and innovation; that provides a wider range of exciting and rewarding jobs; that leads to greater prosperity, and is based on stronger connections between people and businesses both within the city and around the world.

It’s a vision for Wellington as a leading eco-city – one that moves steadily towards a low-carbon future based on ‘green’ innovations that also provide an economic edge and support an outstanding quality of life.”

It is all about Wellington City and less about the Wellington Region. Wellington City wants the population and resources of the region to expand its influence and brand. Nowhere near half a million either in my estimation.

The Hutt Valley is totally against the proposed Wellington Super City. The two cities, Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt would lose local decision making and democracy. The forced amalgamations in 1989 have done a lot of that already. The Hutt Valley would concede local amalgamations between the two cities if necessary. The Wairarapa appears to be in a similar situation.

Lets put PEOPLE first and scrap what is not a very good idea. There appears to be a lot of pushing and shoving from outside the region, and claims of  National Party influencing are very believable.

Many polls have shown  upwards of 70% oppostion, especially in the Hutt Valley and Wairarapa. The people obviously don’t want it. Listen to the voice of the people and democracy.
