Her work background was with the Dept. of Lands and Survey, and the Dept. of Conservation as a draughtswoman, a geodetic computer and after completing study at Lincoln University, a Landscape Architect.

She absolutely loves Wellington and the creative energy and optimism of its residents. She enjoys exploring Wellington’s open spaces and never grows tired of turning a corner and being surprised as Wellington and its harbour reveals itself in a new light or from a fresh angle.   Bronwyn is currently working as a Landscape Architect from home.

He subsequently established a planning and design section within the NZ Forest Service before moving to the Ministry of Forestry.  He then moved to DOC in Wellington as manager of planning.  In 1997 he established a resource planning and design consultancy and has been engaged in a wide range of projects, most of which have involved the Resource Management Act and Catchment Management. His interest is in the management of natural and cultural heritage.

Maurice Clark. Maurice is the Company owner of McKee Fehl Constructors, established in 1973 and with a solid string of projects in Wellington, more recently in building restoration, re-strengthening and refurbishment.

Paul Bruce. Paul Bruce is a class 1 Meteorologist employed at MetService NZ Ltd, Fijian Meteorological Service and Bolivian Climate Service between 1973 and 2010. He also worked in Antarctica for one season, as a volunteer on the native forest campaigns in the mid-70s, the nuclear free movement in the 80s, in South America on a cooperative project, and for Greenpeace in Chile where he documented a pirate whaling operation resulting in its cessation the same year.

Paul promotes strategies for resiliency and climate protection to improve communities’ abilities to survive a transition to a de-carbonised world. The challenge of sustainability and reducing greenhouse emissions rests almost entirely in getting the economy right. Valuing natural capital and ending perverse subsidies, among other things, are all vital to meaningful environmental reform.
