DomPost - JIG to be marketed for development
​We believe it is vital we ensure precious green space in the CBD is keep and protected for the ever-increasing number inner city residents and workers, and our future generations.

In June 2016 the council passed a motion to investigate the gazetting of Jack Ilott Green as a reserve.

We await the outcome of this ​!

  Council to sacrifice precious inner city green space for money
Wellington Council has approved the sale/lease of one of the few remaining green spaces adjacent to our iconic Civic Square (Jack Ilott Green) for the construction of a high rise building.
Not only will this spoil the symmetry of the Civic Square complex, it will shade areas used by the public and compromise the wide welcoming vista of the waterfront when entering Civic Square.  
A green area is an irreplaceable asset that we can ill afford to lose. We should be preserving and protecting these areas not allowing them to be used to raise money for council projects.
 
 
Members of the City Council are trying to justify losing Jack Ilott green by claiming it is not used by the public
