posted 16 Aug 2018, 02:44 by CPCA Secretary   [ updated 16 Aug 2018, 03:09 ]

Located between Churton Park and Tawa, Upper Stebbings Valley and Glenside West is one of the last remaining areas of Wellington identified for new housing.

WCC is keen to hear your thoughts on a future community in Upper Stebbings Valley and Glenside West – what you value as part of your community, how that can work for a new community, and other things you’d like WCC to consider. Your feedback will help WCC to decide what the future of this area might look like.

Follow this link to the WCC information page with the associated survey to determine the views of residents. In addition there is a considerable amount of additional information and reports available.

This will give you an opportunity to have some input to this major development, and your Association recommends that  you take the time to complete the survey.
Note that the closing date for this survey is 3rd September 2018.

So you can get to know how the changes impact on your bus usage, the Community Association, in conjunction with the Regional Council, is holding an information session

on Tuesday 3 July in the Community Centre from 6pm to 8pm.

Come in and view maps of the new routes including where stops are located, pick up a timetable, and find out about the new fares. As you will need a Snapper card straight away, learn how to swap your existing Mana/Newlands Smart card for a new Snapper card at no cost.
