Aro Valley Community Book Exchange
The Community Centre is starting a book exchange. Bring a book that you have read and enjoyed to the community centre and exchange it for another one or just take a book and pass it on. Lets spread the reading love.
To kick start this project we need some books to start us off. Can you help? Please contact Krissy on firstname.lastname@example.org or drop your old books to the community centre.

Wellington City Council is starting a review of the Outer Green Belt Management Plan. The Outer Green Belt is a network of public parks and open spaces extending from Tawa in the north all the way south to the Brooklyn turbine and the coast below. It is an enormous area and the current Management Plan outlines the key values of the reserves and guides how the Council will manage and maintain the various spaces and places.
Please see the attached letter explaining the project and with a map of the reserves.
At this stage we are hoping to understand from the public perspective what key issues or opportunities there might be with the management, maintenance and potential development of the Outer Green Belt reserves network now and in the next 10 years. The attached letter will be sent to all landowners in the Outer Green Belt concept area and via email to all the community group stakeholders (eg residents associations, recreation groups, environmental groups etc).
We would love to hear what you and/or the group you are part of think about the Outer Green Belt.
