3 Catholic sites in survey on support for heritage buildings

St Mary of the Angels, Erskine College and Chapel and St Gerard’s Monastery feature in a poll, launched by Wellington Mayoral Candidate John Morrison, which seeks to measure the amount of support for a bond system to help Wellington building owners strengthen their properties.

The question asked is “Which Wellington heritage building would you like to see saved?”

Morrison invites members of the public to:


  • Have their say and post photos of their favourite historic building/s to Morrison’s Facebook page wall or to Twitter: @JohnMorrisonNZ #SaveOurBuildings

In his electioneering material Morrison says,”If elected as Mayor in October, I will be saving the best of Wellington’s heritage buildings and the city’s historic Cuba Street by setting up a process that will enable building owners to raise finance exclusively to strengthen their buildings.

“The borrowings or bonds will be backed by the assets of Wellington City, but to protect ratepayers they will be attached to building titles and paid back through a special rate.”
