leave a comment »

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.

Follow the full story here with links to articles and peoples comments ex Twitter.

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

Phyllis Tarawhiti

with 9 comments

Dear Hutt NZ, I am trying to contact a resident of the Hutt
Valley – Phyllis Tarawhiti. She returned to New Zealand in 2008
after spending 11 years in the notorious Bangkok Hilton jail. The
following link takes you to an article on her story
http://www.stuff.co.nz/249411. The reason I would like to contact
her is that Raw Television, the television production company I
work for in London produce a National Geographic programme called
Locked Up Abroad. The show has been running for 6 series. Each
episode tells the cautionary tale of someone who has lost their
freedom through bad judgement or bad luck in a country far from
their home. I am struggling to make contact with her at the moment
but do know that she lives in the Hutt Valley – I am aware also
that this is a very large area – could you recommend any local
newspapers or organisations I could get in touch in order to find
her. If her story ends up being used on one of our programmes a
small finder’s fee could be arranged. The website for the series
has clips of past shows.

Please let me know if you would like anymore information. I look
forward to hearing from you. Many thanks Julia Julia Nottingham

Pomare Eviction continues – How long now? The never ending story of Farmer Crescent

with one comment

The media reported this morning that the continuing saga around the case of  three Lower Hutt women looks set to continue in their fight to remain in their state houses, despite the Court of Appeal dismissing their case.

The families were issued an eviction notice from their Pomare homes in March last year, but they say they were discriminated against by Housing New Zealand. A ruling by Judge Justice Wild at the time said nothing could change, and the decision to evict remained.

Todays Court of Appeal ruling has upheld the original Tenancy Tribunal , in favour of Housing New Zealand, however, it also pointed out discrimination is a Bill of Rights issue, and therefore not something the tribunal can even consider.

It’s understood the women will now continue to fight their case through the Human Rights Commission.

The never ending story, Im sure their lawyer Liz Hall (at taxpayers expense) is well shall we say, enjoying the journey.

As I have stated before we could have brought the three houses for them by now with the taxpayers money spent, last years video , shows the total then was $250,000 by just Housing NZ.

When will we get a grip on reality, stop proving a point, clogging up the courts, and wasting my money!
