Richard Tingey Submission to Wellington City Council October 2009
First Name: Murray Richard....called Richard
Last Name: Tingey
I would like to make an oral submission: Yes
I am making this submission: on behalf of an organisation
Organisation Name: The City Is Ours
What do you think of the proposal to revoke the pedestrian status of
Manners Mall to allow buses to travel through: I filled a Statement Of
Proposal submission form, as an individual too.
My three points here are:- (1) Manners Mall was opened by Prime Minister
Robert Muldoon, who arrived in an enclosed sedan chair, carried by four
costumed footmen. His historic opening ceremony officially atoned the
motorway's destruction in victorian Thorndon that included Bolton Street
Cemetery's Pioneer Wellingtonians' graves. Manners Mall is transfered sacred
ground. It is a traditional sacred site.
(2) The major Statement of Proposal matter, in Appendix page ii, of the bus
carriageways' planned 6 m width, was not fairly represented in the Summary
Brochure's mention as, about 6 m, on page 6, below the proposed bus lane
drawing. LGA 2002 s.89(a) applies.
The proposal is thus unfairly represented and needs to be renotified giving
a further month for submissions.
(3) The Statement of Proposal's page 10, 41.4 expectation of the bus lanes
proposal being of negligible disbenefit, suggests further explanation is
required, especially when thirteen benefits of the bus lanes are posed
against only four disadvantages. This 13 to 4 imbalance would be gratefully
redressed with reasons why the above disbenefit is expected to be negligible.
What do you think about the proposal to create a shared space in lower
Cuba Street to compensate for the loss of pedestrian space in Manners Mall,
and which of the scenarios presented do you prefer:
No comment, because I want the present Manners Pedestrian Mall to stay and
