Wellington City Councillors voted 12-2 to approve the proposed construction of a new building on Wellington’s waterfront. Mayor Justin Lester says the building would, if given final planning approval, be “an excellent addition that will add to the ambience of this rapidly-developing part of the waterfront”. The building was proposed by developer Willis Bond for ‘site 9’ on the North Kumutoto section of the waterfront, adjacent to the intersection of Customhouse Quay and Whitmore Street. Councillor Andy Foster, council’s urban development portfolio leader, says that in responseOF to consultation THE D AY feedback, especially from building owners across the quays, the height of the proposed building has been 51.

Summer heat – keep your dog Funeral safe when left in the car!Director Weather forecasters are predicting long hot spells just like the one we have been enjoying recently. Dogs appreciate this warmer weather too. Sunbathers soak up the sun on the deck and we are more likely to get them out or include them on those short trips in the car. Be aware though of the hidden risk of heatstroke. The temperature inside a parked car rises incredibly fast. In only 10 minutes a car parked in the sun, even with windows ajar, reaches over 39. Within half an hour that enclosed heat is an oven, raising the body temperature of an animal inside to the point where brain damage and even death are imminent. That doesn’t mean they should always stay home, but we advise taking pre-cautions – every time – to keep a precious pooch safe. Park in the shade. Reverse in if you can. Be aware the sun moves and recheck the site at least every 15 minutes. Wind ALL your windows down – at least some of the way. Secure your dog so they cannot jump out. For your security invest in those concertina

grids from The Warehouse or pet stores that fit easily into the open spaces and allow for a much bigger gap. Leave a bowl of water. A dog who is mildly stressed and hot can lower temperatures by drinking. Lay a dampened towel out. Dogs sweat through their pads – so keeping these cool with a damp towel in the dog’s travel crate, or on the vehicle floor is a great help. Tether the dog outside the vehicle. Position your dog in shade out of the range of foot traffic. This option only works if your dog is happy to be left like this in a new place and if not contrary to bylaws. Within Wellington City for example, dogs may not legally be left unattended on the street. If you do find a dog shut inside a car you can take action. Call the police and/ or the SPCA emergency hotline. Members of the public may not break into the vehicle – even with good cause, but the sooner action is taken the sooner the air can flow, and life may be saved.
