Posted on 31 August 2009

Wellington Campervan HireAfter years of negotiating over whether or not to have a Hilton Hotel on the waterfront in Wellington, New Zealand, the Wellington City Council is being asked to support a very different plan for the site -- a temporary campervan park.

According to the story, published on, the idea has been put forward in a draft waterfront development plan for the next12 months, and councillors will be asked to approve it this week.

The story says that the council’s plans to have big new buildings on the waterfront are on hold because of “prevailing economic conditions which have resulted in much reduced tenant demand.” So the council-owned waterfront company has come up with the idea of a temporary campervan park on publicly-owned land that the council wants the hotel to occupy.

If the campervan park is approved, the waterfront company will seek up to $500,000 from rates, to build “the necessary infrastructure including amenities and ablution facilities.”
