In 2006 Wellingtonians resoundingly rejected a proposal to build a Hilton on their waterfront (834 submissions out of a total 994 were against), and the plan was again resoundingly rejected last year by the Environment Court.
In response, Kerry Prendergast and her Council have changed the District Plan to bypass the courts and ignore the community. So the waterfront Hilton will be built even though Wellingtonians don’t want it, and the courts said no!
Gee thanks Kerry. I’m sure you’ll give us access to the waterfront as under-paid cleaners for the Hilton corporation.
