Sustainable talks with Green
Party leader at Waitakere
Waitakere City Councillors and Jeanette Fitzsimons met and discussed the Waitakere way of sustainable city development to solve a range of issues facing the city and the region, during an impromptu visit by the Greens Party co-leader yesterday’.
Ms Fitzsimons said she had come to have a conversation about transport planning, compact city development, sustainable approaches to energy and the Waitakere model of best practice and sustainable standards in public buildings.
All these are issues the Council has given a national and regional lead to over the last decade, as the country’s first eco-city with an international reputation for leadership in sustainable thinking and planning.
Mayor Bob Harvey welcomed Mrs Fitzsimons to Waitakere, “where for the last 13 years this city has made a bold, courageous statement of intent.”
