Save the Basin sent the following question to all candidates standing for positions on Wellington City Council, Makara-Ohariu Community Board, Tawa Community Board, Greater Wellington Regional Council and Capital and Coast District Health Board.

“Do you support the construction of a flyover at the Basin Reserve”

The question was sent by email on Thursday 12 September and candidates were given until 5pm on Wednesday 18 September to submit their answer. Candidates who did not respond by this deadline were then given a further opportunity to respond, and the results have now been updated with these responses.

The question was worded to be a yes / no answer and the email stated that this was the format in which candidates were required to answer. For those candidates that did not answer yes / no, they were offered another opportunity to do so. For those candidates that did not feel they could answer the question in this way (after having been given another opportunity to do so), they were advised that they would be noted as having not answered the question.

Here are the results, broken down by ward / board / council.
