HuttNZ Weekly Video Review 18 February 2020

Petone Rotary Fair was held on Jackson Street on Saturday 15 February from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Lots of stalls and entertainment for the family. As always a popular fair drawing people from around the region.

Local residents whose property has been purchased as part of the Melling Interchange development are upset that local MP Chris Bishop released a newsletter, while they remain unaware as to the next step from government agencies involved. Mr Bishop has undertaken to contact residents directly impacted.

Christopher Bishop Hi there. I’ve been keeping people informed through letters for two years, this was the 4th one that went out.

Absolutely no intention to be insensitive to anyone impacted by the project. My office has been helping people affected by the project for over four years now. Always ready and willing to assist and I’ll be sitting down with Chanelle soon
