Council analyst Sue Johnson told the regulatory management committee the council was not happy with how Otaki was treated in Greater Wellington Regional Council's proposed public trans- port plan. She said for a 10-year document it was pretty short-sighted'', par- ticularly in Otaki's case. At Thursday's meeting, council- lor Roger Booth questioned whether the council should harden its expectations in the submission for boosted public transport services to Otaki. The submission stated the coun- cil did not expect immediate investment in boosted public transport to the town -- but it did want acknowledgement that it was a legitimate strategic goal''. Mr Booth asked if the entire section should be removed, as set- ting too-low expectations from the regional council. I'd rather have that sentence removed.'' However council chief executive Pat Dougherty said one of the reasons the passage was included was so the council was not seen as asking for everything now''. This is a long-term plan and what's very hard with a long-term plan is to get anything, all of a sudden, in the first two or three years. So we were trying to think more strategically about this.'' He said the passage was included so the council could begin to get things the council seeks somewhere on the plan. The plan includes a new layered'' service approach, that includes a rapid transit network connecting regionally significant centres, and a quality transit net- work'', branching off from this to smaller centres. It also suggested possible new connections between Wellington's northern suburbs and the Hutt. Other connections are included to destinations such as Otaki, Carterton and Featherston. The plan sets funding priorities for the next 10 years.
