Wellington's suburbs

Wellington residents’ attitude must change if the city is to progress, a developer says.

Developments in both Karori and Miramar are in the firing line from concerned residents, but director of The Wellington Company, Ian Cassels says without progress, the city would be “going backwards”.

In Karori, residents are concerned a new retirement village being built by Ryman Healthcare on a former teachers’ college campus will stress the suburb’s “creaking infrastructure”, and in Miramar a group of households have banded together to oppose Wellington Airport re-purposing the former Miramar South School grounds for extended operations.

Mayor Andy Foster said every development had its own “unique challenges”. “There are a lot more substantive issues that need to be sorted through with both developments.”
