MEDIA RELEASE: Rimutaka candidate harnesses power of Government

At the former Upper Hutt District Court carpark.
National's Rimutaka candidate, Lewis Holden has his first demonstration of how powerful it can be to have a strong voice for Rimutaka in a National-led government.

Courts Minister Chester Borrows has agreed with the Upper Hutt City Council to open the former Upper Hutt District Court car park to the public.

"At a public meeting hosted by Mayor Wayne Guppy, a member of the audience asked for the car park to be opened to the public,” Mr Holden said. “I took the issue up with Minister Borrows and I'm very pleased to see the result" said Mr Holden. "This is just a small demonstration of how effective, strong local representation for Rimutaka can be in a National-led government, he said.

The car park, to be open daily from 7:30am to 6:00pm Monday to Saturday, will be maintained by the Council.

"Now that the district court has been decommissioned, it's important that the Upper Hutt community makes the best use of the site,” Mr Holden said.
