The Matariki cluster will send Aotearoa a new public holiday next year.

The actual date of Matariki will move but is expected to always fall on a Friday or Monday.

The first day off will be Friday June 24 in 2022.

Government advice suggests the new Matariki public holiday will cost businesses between $377 - $448 million.

But that advice does not include any potential economic benefits from the new public holiday, set to be introduced from next year.

The estimated cost has come under fire from ACT leader David Seymour who said the public holiday amounted to a tax on business.

Seymour suggested that the Government get rid of another public holiday to make way for Matariki.

The Wintergarden in Auckland Domain is set to undergo seismic strengthening.

Both glasshouses will have steel ties installed internally with new laminated glass and stronger code compliant aluminium glazing bars placed on the roofs.

Expected to take 18 months, the work will boost post tension strengthening work of the Tropical House chimney stack in 2003.

Auckland Domain Committee chair and Auckland councillor Desley Simpson said only one glasshouse would be worked on at a time so Aucklanders could still take in the beauty of the exotic plants.

“It is great to be able to not just allow Aucklanders to enjoy the Wintergardens as they were first intended, but also to make improvements, so that they will cope better with the challenges of seismic and climate change risks.

"It is about being faithful to the heritage of the buildings and finding sympathetic solutions to deal with these risks.”

The renovations will see the timber joinery repaired and repainted.

They include installing larger gutters and additional rainwater pipes as well as changing the roofs' opaque glass to the original design of clear glass.
