You would think that the current council and Mayor were elected to solely represent those property owners located within the wider CBD. It’s amazing how they want to spend millions of Mum and Dad ratepayers funds on improving parking and facilities including building themselves a monolith on one of the busiest and congested streets in the area! Yet these same people continually approve consents for new hotel and apartments buildings with little or no off-street parking, thus allowing for the further strain on the areas already deficient infrastructure!!
Perhaps the answers on why can be found in the minutes of the closed-door public excluded meetings and back door land swaps, wheeling and dealing, that this council decision making has revolved around. Hopefully, John when you are elected you will put a stop to this nonsense and name and shame those involved.
