Top topics from March
On 8th and 10th of March we held the third series of public information sessions to update local communities on progress on the proposed extension to the Southern Landfill.
At these sessions we were discussing the technical studies that have been underway, some of our findings and some plans for the future in the areas being studied – Land, Air, Roads, People and Water. We also discussed the ecology of the site, what we found and some of the options we are considering for the future.
We talked about options for restoration planting of the Landfill once it is closed so that it fits into the surrounding environment. The emphasis will be on native plants that are present in the surrounding area.
Waste minimisation was another popular topic. We talked about the initiatives that Wellington City Council has developed or is developing together with national and regional programmes that are supported City wide.
