Wellington waterfront could host campervan park

11:36 am on 1 September 2009

An ice skating rink or a campervan park could be installed on Wellington's waterfront on a temporary basis.

Work on buildings planned for the northern end of the waterfront is being delayed due to the recession, possibly for as long as five years and building is also being held up by planning disputes.

The proposal, being considered by Wellington City Council, does not affect the southern end of the waterfront, which is dominated by open spaces such as Waitangi Park.

There have been complaints proposal follows years of complaints that there are not enough camping opportunities in the Wellington region.
