I'm pleased that the council is focusing on public transport, but ideally the buses and trains themselves should be publicly owned as well as the infrastructure. The addition of land to the town belt is a good idea, as is
the expansion of cycleways

I would like to see Council highlight on your website the key areas you will focus on and along side these objectives, show what you have achieved each year and the investment in these areas.
I would like to see commitment
in supporting Maori Language and Culture as well as Pacific languages and cultures.

It is not that I oppose certain areas of improvement, but some of the areas being given priority in this plan is silly. Culture and arts is an important part of wellington's identity, but we have major transport, housing and
environmental needs that must be addressed and deserve attention before consideration of other cultural areas. Would also like to add that the absolute force for what seems to be turning into a city-wide cycling network is getting out of hand. There is not a great enough population of cyclists for cycle lanes to be replacing car parks (as they will be around evans bay) and I do not think they encourage cyclists. We live in a city of hills, think a little more practically, that money can be better spent.

Generation Zero would like Wellington City Council to endorse the Zero Carbon Act.

The 10 year plan is full of proposed expansion of various Council activities. Yet buried on page 55 is a statement that Council Financial Strategy is to ensure affordable rates. The current inflation rate is 2.2% yet Council proposes to
increase residential rates by at least double this figure. If weekend parking is not approved the rates increase becomes over 7%. With many retired residents I believe Council should not increase rates by more than 3%.

I don't feel like the amount of energy going into encouraging people to cycle to work and to the city is realistic or valuable. There are massive hills, wicked wind, rain, and I'm not an athlete. Happy to have cyclists
and an appropriate amount of infrastructure for them but this is not a mode of transport for everyone and I think money is better spent on other transport options.

It’s all very well asking a lot of questions about what people want. people typically support most of the questions asked due to the way they are worded. However, as Council has neglected to add details such as the costs
of each project to the basic question your not going to get a true representation of people thoughts.
In my view all projects should be prioritised in such a way that any rates increase is in line wth inflation. Its about time WCC and the majority of other Councils started living within their means and not simply using rate payers as a bank.
For example development contributions and rates have been paid towards sewer and stormwater maintenance for years. It is therefor somewhat incomprehensible that Council would need to increase rates to cover the costs of basic improvements to these networks. These improvements should be funded by the rates we already pay.
Any rates increase above inflation makes me and my family less well off. Impacts on our ability to pay for other costs such as school, sports, medical expenses.
Councils decision makers need to carefully consider this before deciding on any rates increase.

The indoor arena is vital to Wellington. As NZ's capital city and so-called 'arts capital', we need to be able to compete with Auckland for larger acts.

Do not build a Chinese garden in Frank Kitts Park. You have no right to defile that place with your ludicrous ideas.
