Join us in celebrating Island Bay, Local Kai and the Holiday Season.

Facebook event details here

We’ll be setting up big beautiful potluck kai table and invite you to bring something to add to it if you wish. It could be your favourite festive treat, something you have grown in your māra or your favourite dish, what ever you wish to share.

We will have a table set to share and swap seeds, seedlings or crops, you are welcome to contribute anything to this table also and equally welcome to take home anything you wish to grow or cook.

We will also look at the garden beds at the community centre to see if we can grow some kai there, or brainstorm other areas in the community that might also work as a community growing space.

This event is designed to show case the mahi of Seeds to Feeds and how it can be used in community to share kai, celebrate kai and make new connections.

If you would like to add anything to this event, maybe music, face painting, games or more, please feel free to reach out to Sarah@seedstofeeds.nz.

We can’t wait to spend this time with you and look forward to meeting you, your whanau and anyone else who wishes to come along.

All Welcome.

Wellington Community Facilities – have your say

What does the Plan include?

The Plan covers a wide range of community facilities (almost 300 buildings) including:

  • libraries
  • swimming pools
  • recreation centres
  • community centres
  • community spaces in city housing complexes
  • public toilets
  • other community facilities on Council land used by sports, recreation, arts, culture and community groups.

The Plan will also look at non-council facilities, such as schools, churches, marae and private community facilities as these often fulfil similar functions in some areas.

Have your say

WCC wants to hear from you to understand your use (and non-use) and views about community facilities. They have three surveys available for you to have your say:

1. Community facilities survey(External link)(External link) – provide feedback across all community facilities and your views on the benefits and suggestions for the future.

2. Specific community facility survey(External link) – provide feedback on a specific community facility you have used or are interested in. You can repeat this survey for as many facilities as you would like.

3. Public toilet survey(External link) – have your say on Wellington’s public toilets.

You can have your say as an individual or on behalf of an organisation like a facility user-group, club, resident association or stakeholder group.

Please complete the surveys by midnight Tuesday 29 November to help inform Wellington’s future community facility provision.

Share your experiences through Berhampore to Newtown

Not strictly Island Bay, but does include Adelaide road from Berhampore to Dee Street roundabout

Wellingtonians have been very clear they want action on climate change, more housing choices, and a city where more people can get around in zero or low carbon ways.

Berhampore and Newtown are busy inner-city suburbs with a high density of people living here. The area is a key destination for many Wellingtonians – people looking for a great place to live close to the central city and Wellington Hospital’s campus, people working at hospitals and health services, visiting patients, or getting to appointments, commuting to work or university, visiting the vibrant town centres, and getting to parks, sportsgrounds, and Wellington Zoo.

What this project involves
We are starting plans to make changes to transport in the Berhampore to Newtown area and upgrade the Berhampore town centre. The areas we’re focused on include:

  • Installing bus and bike improvements to complete the south coast to city route
  • Setting up a parking plan for Newtown
  • Upgrading the Berhampore town centre
  • We’re working with technical experts and meeting with key stakeholders and businesses in this area to help inform the proposed changes.

As part of helping us understand the local context, we are keen to learn about how you and your whanau currently use and experience this area. Your feedback will help us to get the designs right and evaluate the changes. We’ll also be gathering data about numbers of people on bikes, scooters and buses, and monitoring the parking situation.

Take our survey

WCC The Parade Traffic Resolutions October 2022

WCC is consulting on two Traffic Resolutions in Island Bay. Head to the WCC website for full details and to access the resolutions (or see below).

With the safety improvements on The Parade north and south of the shopping centre complete, they are now asking for feedback on the street and parking changes (traffic resolutions) required to make similar improvements in the main shopping area.

Note from Sheila based on discussion with Brad Singh WCC, Brennan Baxley WCC and our Southern Ward Councillors, Laurie and Nureddin, at our committee meeting on 7/11/22: When the plans for North and south end of the Parade were agreed upon, the plan for the village area was not, and required the traffic management plan to be developed. This plan was developed, businesses consulted, and now the resolution for changes in the village area produced. So although it may feel like there has been previous consultation for this area, a traffic resolution had not been agreed, and now that it has it must go out for consultation as part of the formal process.

Furthermore, there had been talk previously about whether the angle parking could be retained in the village area. This would have significantly impacted the space available for the public space design project, and the goal for improved spaces for those walking and using other modes of active transport. For this reason the council voted in favour of converting the parking on the west side of the Parade in the shopping area to parallel parks. The concept plans for the public space improvements will hopefully be available to view in the next month.

TR98 – 22 The Parade, Island Bay – time-restricted parking

TR178 – 22 The Parade, Island Bay – Town Centre Safety Improvements

To give WCC your feedback, read the traffic resolution report/s relevant to you and complete the online feedback form below. The deadline for feedback is 5pm Sunday 13 November 2022.

The feedback form is also available in a printable version which can be downloaded on the webpage. If you need extra support, please phone 04 499 4444 or email theparade@wcc.govt.nz. They can send you a paper form or find a solution that works for you.
