We the undersigned request that the Wellington City Council to ensure that those evicted from their homes as a result of the Wellington City Council's decision on 30 September 2020 to sell 20 City Council housing units, are found appropriate and affordable housing and that their relocation costs be paid by Wellington City Council.

Background information

On 30 September the Wellington City Council voted to sell 20 housing units. We believe those living in the units should be assisted by the Council to find suitable, affordable accommodation and that the Council should pay for their removal expenses. The Council should still make solving the City's housing crisis a high priority.
