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.
Well I have been decidedly slack of late posting on HuttNZ, as a new business venture takes off and my focus is on that.
But I would be rather remiss in not posting about last weeks annual Winter Carnival at Petone. Whilst I did not attend the days events, the buzz was that it was just as much fun as previous years for family entertainment, followed by the specatular fireworks show off Petone wharf.
Words don’t do justice to this carnival so courtesy of the web, here is a visual representation of what occurred, with the focus this time on nightime activities.
Follow the links from below, and thanks immensly to those that took these pictures

Today is the 19th annual Hutt News Rotary Fair held at Jackson Street Petone.
Over 300 stalls offering everything from delicious food to an array of merchandise was on display.
Huge crowd, great weather, bit blustery but fun for the family the photos and video are just a little insight into some of what happened.

Around 9 pm last night two seperate car crashes occurred.
A car burst into flames in Petone at the intersection of Jackson and Cuba Street after two cars collided. Firefighters put out the fire and nobody was hurt.
In another seperate incident at Haywards Hill two cars collided no injuries were reported.

Enjoy looking at Petone through a creative Summer eye.
Friday brought an Orca pod of roughly six whales into Wellington Harbour. They entertained lots of people for around 9 hours, but put on a very grand show at Petone beach from 3pm as they moved gradually around to Days Bay. There were literally hundreds of people following them.
Fortunately I have secured some video footage, so sit back and enjoy if you missed it.
