    Dear Richard
    Thank you for this.
    I will read your email carefully and may seek further information from staff.
    I will not reply further to you but instead will read all before our debate.
    Kind regards
    Helene

    There is a lack of professionalism in the Council Report which appears geared to support only one conclusion.
    We await the Architectural Centre response with interest. However it is obvious that many professional planners share the view that the problem at the Basin does not merit such an awful solution.
    What is even more concerning is whether the Council should have outsourced the work to independent experts, to protect the integrity of its decision making.

    What can you say? The council officers, minority group of WCC councillors, NZTA and National cabinet are hell bent on imposing their hideous uber-bridge on us unlucky Wellingtonians. They are unswayed by reasoned arguments or impassioned aesthetic pleas.
    My question is why? What is their over-riding consideration? Is there endemic corruption rooted in the roading sector so that the funds to bulldoze every other view point? Kickbacks? I don’t know but I am sure there is something toxic at work.
    Option RR Is the best way to go.

    Ellie – here is the Architectural Centre’s response.

    But it was dismissed out of hand by council staff when they briefed councillors at yesterday’s council workshop.
