Variation 17 Remits From Councillor Varnham

Variation 17 Remits From Councillor Varnham

February 2, 2000

Garry Poole
Chief Executive
Wellington City Council

Dear Garry,

This is to confirm the final wording of the motions which Cr Judy Siers and I wish to move at the Emergency Council Meeting at 2pm, February 7.

We wish it to be noted that all parts of this motion except b(iii) were passed at the public meeting on Variation 17 called by Waterfront Watch at the Town Hall on February 1.

Votes at the meeting were approximately evenly split on b(iii) and there were strong indications that it would have passed had a maximum height been specified. We have amended it accordingly.

Thank you for the assistance you and your staff have provided in this matter.


Cr Mary Varnham

Telephone 801-9928/Facsimile 801-9917

CC: Cr Judy Siers

Motion for Special Council Meeting, February 7, 2000

(b) urgently reviews the current concept plan for Lambton Harbour to:

(i) eliminate the proposed new buildings; and
