Tony Randle made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Tony Randle

Dear Wellington City Council,

I understand that the WCC is to decide on the revised Spatial Plan for Wellington City this month and that this includes locations that are to permit 6 storey building due to the presence of a PT stop or railway station deemed to be a Rapid Transit Stop.

I seek to understand the more recent WCC analysis and communications on the criteria and process used by the WCC to assess which public transport stops are deemed to be a rapid transit stop. I also seek to understand the assistance the WCC received in developing these criteria and in applying these criteria to determine which locations are rapid transit stops. I therefore request the following information:

1) Can the WCC please provide copies of the reports, presentations and/or working papers where the Spatial Plan definitions of "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" were analysed or discussed since January 2021?

2) Can the WCC please provide copies of the meeting (and workshop) agendas, presentations, minutes and/or meeting notes at which the Spatial Plan definitions of "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" were analysed or discussed since January 2021?

3) Can the WCC please provide copies of the reports, presentations or working papers where there was discussion on whether specific bus stops, cable car stops or any railway stations would or would not meet the Spatial Plan definitions of being a "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" since January 2021?

4) Can the WCC please provide copies of the meeting (and workshop) agendas, presentations, minutes or meeting notes where there was discussion on whether specific bus stops, cable car stops or railway stations would or would not meet the Spatial Plan definitions of being a "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" since January 2021?

5) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Greater Wellington Regional Council where the Spatial Plan definitions of "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" were analysed or discussed since January 2021?

6) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with any other local government councils or agencies where the Spatial Plan definitions of "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" were analysed or discussed since January 2021?

7) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with any central government ministry, department or agency where the Spatial Plan definitions of "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" were analysed or discussed since January 2021?

8) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Greater Wellington Regional Council where there was discussion on whether specific bus stops, cable car stops or railway stations would or would not meet the Spatial Plan definitions of being a "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" since January 2021?

9) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with any other local government councils or agencies where there was discussion on whether specific bus stops, cable car stops or railway stations would or would not meet the Spatial Plan definitions of being a "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" since January 2021?

10) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with any central government ministries, departments or agencies where there was discussion on whether specific bus stops, cable car stops or railway stations would or would not meet the Spatial Plan definitions of being a "rapid transit service" and/or "rapid transit stop" since January 2021?

If this information is held in electronic form, it is preferred that it is provided in its complete and original electronic format. In addition, it is preferred that information is not removed from documentation even if it may be considered out of scope for this request.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Randle
