Revoke the resource consent for the "Wellywood"sign planned for the Miramar Cutting hill


Petition details

Resource consent was given to Wellington Airport to erect a "Wellywood" sign in June/July. This will be visible when planes are landing in Wellington and we think that it is an unsightly plan that will destroy the cultural uniqueness of Wellington.

Background information

Wellington City Council approved resource consent for a planned "Wellywood" sign to be situated on the Miramar cutting hill, which is owned by Wellington Airport.
