Peter Dunne of United Future released today a list of Earthquake prone buildings in Lower Hutt and Petone. Upper Hutt City council as of yet has not released its list.
No doubt all of this relevant given the recent quakes.

We do appreciate your comments as this issue is important certainly for the future of Petone and the issue around Jackson Streets character buildings.

The Hutt City Council has budgeted $50,000 to maintain and enhance the existing 12 cameras trained on the CBD, plus others in Naenae and Stokes Valley.
A further $50,000 is budgeted for 2010/2011 for camera installation in Wainuiomata.
No doubt these cameras will further enhance crime preventation in the District, but Im at a loss as to where the other $50,000 reported in the LTCCP is going.
