Old villa at 59 Spring St, Onehunga, won't be demolished

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. I've found out about the future of the old villa at 59 Spring St, Onehunga. There was speculation on Facebook earlier this week it was going to be demolished.

I've found out about the future of the old villa at 59 Spring St, Onehunga. There was speculation on Facebook earlier this week it was going to be demolished. I've been in touch with Auckland Council who confirmed it does not have any kind of heritage status with them. This means council permission is not required to demolish or remove the villa from the property. The council said a resource consent application had been lodged to develop the site, but no decisions have been made on it yet. However, a representative of the new owner gave me a call this afternoon to say they won't, and never planned to, demolish the house. They want to preserve New Zealand's history and will be keeping it. They said the outside will be getting some TLC, but the villa may be relocated. I'll keep you posted if any more info comes to light.

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.
