The St Heliers’ community sent a very clear message to the Council that the proposed changes to St Heliers in the Unitary Plan are not wanted.

SOS has been campaigning for a reduction in height in the village for over two years, ever since the destruction of the eastern side of Turua Street.

The meeting of over 400 people on Monday 10th demonstrated that the community supports this idea and is convinced that a height reduction is the only thing that will save the village.

This response from the community was achieved by a concerted effort by Save Our St Heliers and the Residents’ Association who joined forces to educate the community about the impact of the Unitary Plan. The Council cannot ignore overwhelming community agreement such as this .
