Save Frank Kitts Park
Mayor Celia Wade-Brown and Andy Foster have sprung a proposal on residents of Wellington to redevelop the hugely popular Frank Kitts Park on Wellington's waterfront including removing the well used amphitheatre, opening the park up to winds off the harbour, and including a Chinese Garden that will be locked to the public at night - all without having consulted Wellington residents at all!
We believe Wellingtonians love Frank Kitts Park, and we resent the plans to redevelop it not being properly discussed with residents before going to resource consent. It's one of the most family friendly, multi-purpose open air sites in the entire city and it's important that if changes are made to Frank Kitts Park it's done with the prior consultation of Wellingtonians, not dumped on us at the last minute and told it has to progress or we'll cause diplomatic incidents.
We call on Mayor Wade-Brown, Andy Foster, and other Councillors to abandon this project, put ratepayers money to better uses, and properly consult with Wellingtonians before making any commitments to redevelop Frank Kitts Park in the future.

We, the residents and people who love Wellington as the Coolest Little Capital in the World, call on you to abandon the current plans to redevelop Frank Kitts Park and instead return to the drawing board and embark on proper community consultation in the future before any plans to change this much-loved public space are developed again.
