Respect The Mountain is a community based group who believe there are options for sustainable and sensitive development based at The Springs, which would cater for tourists and locals alike. These options do not include a cable car and summit development.
We believe kunanyi / Mount Wellington has a rich history and multiple areas and locations that people can visit to celebrate what makes this a special place.
It is our view that sensitive areas like the summit should not be subjected to further development as this will impact the visual and environmental pollution of a fragile and unique place.
We understand that the mountain plays host to a wide number of activities for both locals and visitors. We encourage people to explore the mountain and respect its history, its heritage and its place in the hearts of those who love it.
