Shelly Bay consultation to start in July By Emma McAuliffe

Wellington City Council wants to know what the public thinks should happen with council owned land at Shelly Bay.

Wellington City Council would be going ahead with consultation on the sale of their part of Shelly Bay next month. Consultation on what the public believes should happen with council’s one hectare of land proposed for sale to Shelly Bay Limited is set to start in July. Shelly Bay Limited was set up as a joint venture between the Wellington Company and Taranaki Whānui /Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust (PNBST). The venture would aim to develop Shelly Bay into a new area with 350 new properties, including a boutique hotel and rest home.

Shots of the south coast at new exhibition An exhibition in Lower Hutt beginning this weekend would present some stunning views of Wellington’s south coast. Beautiful Landscapes of the Wellington Outdoors, a photography exhibition by Martin Warenczuk would be on display from July 1 to 31 at Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery in Petone.

Ian said following consultation responses would be independently analysed then presented to council to see where to go from there. The consent for the development at Shelly Bay was approved in April this year, but the proposed land sale and lease needed to go through a public consultation process in compliance with the Local Government Act 2002 and gain final council approval. The resource consent application was filed under the Housing Accords Special Housing Areas Act, which was set up in 2013 to fast-track housing projects.
