·         a new security camera and LED lights had been installed in the Petone library area;

·         the Christmas parade was a success, a debriefing meeting was required to help the preparation for the 2018 parade;

·         An update was provided on the work to the facades, approximately half had been completed. The work to the parapets had been completed with the use of ropes instead of scaffolding;

·         a request received from the Mayor had been actioned to provide a hamper from retailers for the two tourists robbed at Kmart at the weekend;

·         the Board Chair and the JSP Chair had separately met with the Council’s Urban Design Manager about heritage design and would be reported to the City Development Committee on 27 February;

·         the Petone Police Station would be 110 years old, information and photos were being gathered from Porirua Heritage Library to commemorate this milestone; and

·         a JSP business and event planning meeting would be held at the weekend.


The Chair commented in relation to the Regional Heritage Month, that Wellington City Council held a heritage event in October last year. She requested that officers communicate with Wellington City Council to see if this would be continuing this year.

In response to a question, Ms Dobbs informed that from the last heritage fund they had received around $5k, $1,500 each for three doors, around three to four years ago. The total heritage fund this time would be $50k and the JSP would therefore work with building owners to encourage further refurbishment.



Presentation by Wellington Water Ltd - Establishing Community Water Stations (18/87)

Mr Brown, Programme Manager from Wellington Water Ltd elaborated on the project for providing emergency water and community water stations, following on from the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, as follows:

·         the aim was to supply 20 litres to every residence in the Wellington region, from day eight after an earthquake event, until water mains service from reservoirs were restored;

·         working from Upper Hutt to Wellington cities, it would take around 30 days to restore service to reservoirs to the Hutt Valley;

·         22 community water stations would be provided across the region, linked to streams and ground water bores;

·         the community water stations were to be constructed around a 20ft shipping container, the stations were currently being locally constructed in Tawa;

·         each water station would store large emergency water bladders which could be filled and transported by utility vehicles to water collection points in an earthquake event;

·         there would be a collection point within 1km of every residence and within 500m on steeper sites;

·         construction of stations would start at the end of February 2018 and all stations would be constructed by the end of June 2018;

·         the Korokoro site would the test site, to be completed by early March 2018;

·         a plan was being developed currently on who would be running the water stations locally; and

·         four stations in Lower Hutt were planned, two in Eastbourne, one in Petone, Korokoro and one in Wainuiomata. Site specific information was available and also on the Wellington Water Ltd website.


In response to questions, Mr Brown informed that there were additional water sources available, planned and spaced out taking into account transport links, if any road became impassable. As the stations were shipping containers, they could be moved if necessary and the water bladders could also be towed across the harbour. Current water sources had been factored into the overall plan.

In response to further questions, Mr Brown advised that the Korokoro station would not have any cladding, as there was not much footfall to the area. Also it would be on NZTA land on a month by month lease. He informed that there would be a lot of messaging if an event occurred, clearly advertising where the stations and collection points would be located, which would cover if a station had needed to be moved.


There were no conflict of interest declarations.
