Feedback sought on potential plans to sell properties

17 May 2018

Capital & Coast DHB is seeking feedback over the coming weeks on potential plans to sell properties in Porirua and Wellington.

The properties are 201 Warspite Avenue in Porirua and 2/2A Coromandel Street in Newtown, Wellington (images attached).

The Warspite Ave land and building have housed the Waitangirua Medical Centre since the 1970s – leased to GPs and a pharmacy for most of this time, and, more recently, to the Ora Toa primary health organisation (PHO) run by Te Runanga Toa Rangatira Incorporated.

The Newtown property consists of two buildings built during the 1970s and leased to a crèche and a charitable organisation, the Ewart building – also built in the 1970s – that is currently occupied by DHB staff and a small community welfare operation, and a vacant former nurses’ home built around 1910 that is subject to a heritage designation.

“As a provider of hospital and healthcare services, maintaining and leasing properties is not core business for us,” said corporate services general manager Thomas Davis.

“As such, these buildings and associated lands are not part of our future investment plans and we are considering disposal of them.”

Anyone wishing to provide feedback on the intention to sell these properties should do so in writing and send it to Philip.butter@ccdhb.org.nz or Philip Butter, level 4, Ward Support Block, Wellington Regional Hospital, Private Bag 7902, Wellington 6242. Feedback must be submitted and received by 5pm Friday 1 June.

Gordon Campbell: On Budget 2018

To put it mildly, Budget 2018 has not been an outbreak of wild-eyed, tax and spend liberalism. “Unfortunately not,” says CTU economist Bill Rosenberg agrees laconically. “But what you're seeing and within the constraints [the government] have set themselves, they’ve done quite a good job of beginning to eat away at the deficits that have built up over the years. Not only the social deficits, but also in areas like economic development, the provinces, bio-security and so on.” More>>
