A foolish attempt to liveblog a marathon Wellington council meeting


Wellington editor Joel MacManus brings you live updates from Wellington City Council’s Long Term Plan meeting as mayor Tory Whanau presents her budget.

Today’s presentation of the proposed 10-year budget for Wellington is the first big meeting to decide Wellington’s Long Term Plan, and Whanau’s most significant opportunity to put her stamp on the city. For more on why we’re liveblogging a council meeting, see this backgrounder. You can watch the livestream below.
