Around the motu: Mike Tweed in Whanganui

From Nine To Noon, 10:45 am on 21 May 2024

The Whanganui District Council has snapped up a bunch of buildings and land in the central city for $3.9m - with the potential end product a new, council-led hotel and carpark.

Whanganui is one of only a handful of local authorities without a kerbside service but Mike says that is about to change.

And the decade long Sarjeant Gallery redevelopment is entering its final months and the final bill looking to be around $69 million.
