Wellington the ‘Smart Capital’ of 2040 – looks to build pack and stack housing characteristic of Agenda 2030

This article focuses on Island Bay from the Wellington plan for that word again ‘sustainable’ futures. And as always I reflect on the date the ‘Sustainable’ plans kicked off … 1992 with the Earth Summit & the introduction of Agenda 21. It is intriguing always to note that in its first 30 years we are looking less sustainable than ever, witness the disgusting state of pollution, the unprecedented state of homelessness (43K), the never seen before exponential debt both on a personal & a national level, and the child poverty. We rate third highest in the developed world. And still the councils waffle on about sustainability. If this were for real would they not have started out properly 30 years ago? And so they are basing this growth on the prediction we have a 7 million increase in population over the next 50 years. In fact according to one source NZ’s population is forecast to drop by 1.2 million between 2017 and 2025. That is 4.5 to 3.3 million ( a rough estimate of 1.2 million decrease every 8 years) which would see us at an approximate 7.2 million decrease rather than increase by 2070. And this forecast of growth is cited in the plan as justification for cities to go upwards, as high as 6-8 story apartment blocks. An interesting read, all the council documents (links in the article) bristling with that familiar Agenda 21/30 rhetoric. Read at the link below. EWR

Back from a $20,000 course, mayor displays his leadership skills in explaining plans for hefty rates rises

Well what’s new on the LG front? EWR

Point of Order

Wasn’t leadership among the attributes claimed by the Mayor of Wellington while campaigning for the job before the local body elections last year?

We thought so – until we heard he had been despatched (or despatched himself) to a leadership course near Queenstown.

The news was reported by Stuff:

Wellington ratepayers are forking out $20,000 for the mayor’s leadership programme at a luxury resort.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Stuff that Wellington Mayor Andy Foster was away on a six-day leadership retreat at Millbrook Resort in Arrowtown, north of Queenstown.

We can only wonder what they taught him, because the next thing we learn from the Wellington city council is that rates could be raised by 9.2%.

This is being contemplated at a time when coronavirus is taking a heavy toll on local households and businesses.
