advantage of global manufacturing efficiencies, much of this large scale industry has changed to smaller design-led and medium sized industries exporting to the world. Over the past 25 years service, distribution, and consumer-oriented sectors have increased. Lower Hutt remains the main location for light industrial activity in the Wellington Region.

Childhood and early career Born in 1951 in Pahiatua, Nigel Cox grew up in the Wairarapa and Lower Hutt area. He worked in various jobs up until 1977; in the words of his author page on the Victoria University Press website, "His early working life reads like an author trying to find his way: advertising account executive, assembly line worker at Ford, deck hand, coalman, door-to-door turkey salesman, driver." Later, between 1977 and 1993, he worked as a bookseller in Auckland and Wellington.in Lower Hutt Lower Hutt, Wellington , he is the son of the renowned historian John Beaglehole (John Cawte Beaglehole). thumb left 250px The Meridian Mall, Dunedin, home of Arthur Barnett Ltd.

In 1846 conflict arose between settlers and Māori (Hutt Valley Campaign), which led to skirmishes. In 1855 a major earthquake (1855 Wairarapa earthquake) raised part of the lower valley, allowing the reclamation of land from swamp. On New Year’s Day 1859 the first permanent lighthouse to be built in New Zealand was lit at Pencarrow Head, and was home to New Zealand’s only female lighthouse keeper, Mary Jane Bennett, was the inaugural operator of the lighthouse. http: www.heritage.org.nz places places-to-visit wellington-region pencarrow-lighthouse The railway line from central Wellington reached Lower Hutt station (now Western Hutt) in April 1874, with the line travelling north up the west side of the river to Silverstream opening two years later. Before the Second World War, urban settlement in the lower Hutt Valley concentrated mainly on Petone, central Lower Hutt and Eastbourne, with a total population of 30,000. In 1927 the Public Works Department (New Zealand Ministry of Works) completed the construction of a branch railway line to Waterloo on the east side of the river; the route diverging from the main line between Lower Hutt and Petone. Two years later the railway workshops moved from Petone to a new larger site off the new branch at Woburn. In the late 1940s new suburbs of state housing developed along the eastern side of the Hutt Valley, from Waiwhetu to Taita, to alleviate nationwide housing shortages and to cater for the booming population. Between 1946 and 1954, the railway line from Waterloo was extended through these new suburbs to Haywards, becoming the main line in 1954 when the existing main line was closed between Haywards and Melling. By the end of the 1950s, Lower Hutt had a population of 80,000. Government The Hutt City Council is made up of a mayor and twelve councillors. Ray Wallace (Ray Wallace (mayor)) was elected Hutt City mayor (Mayor of Lower Hutt) in 2010, succeeding David Ogden (David Ogden (politician)). The city's six electoral wards (Northern, Western, Central, Eastern, Harbour and Wainuiomata) each elect two councillors. Neighbouring councils are Wellington City Council (adjoining to the north-west), Porirua City Council to the north, Upper Hutt City Council to the north-east and South Wairarapa District Council to the east. The boundaries of the Hutt City local body have evolved from a series of amalgamations and boundary changes over the years. The Hutt County Council was established in 1877 and covered the region from Wellington's south coast up to Waikanae, excluding the Wellington City Council area. As the region grew, urban parts of the Hutt county became autonomous boroughs: Petone in 1888, Lower Hutt in 1891, Eastbourne (Eastbourne, New Zealand) in 1906, Johnsonville (Johnsonville, New Zealand) in 1908, Upper Hutt in 1908, Porirua in 1962 and Kapiti (Kapiti Coast (district), New Zealand) in 1974. In 1941 Lower Hutt became a city. It incorporated Normandale (Normandale, New Zealand) in 1957. In 1987 1989 the New Zealand Government forced local authorities to consolidate, which led to Lower Hutt amalgamating with the adjacent Boroughs of Petone and Eastbourne and with the Wainuiomata District (which had its independence for barely a year), and to the abolition of the Hutt County Council. Geography The city centres on the lower (southern) valley of the Hutt River (Hutt River, New Zealand), to the northeast of Wellington. The valley widens as the river nears its mouth, so the central urban area of the city forms a triangle with its longest side along the shoreline. In the upper reaches of the city the Western and Eastern Hutt Hills become closer, culminating in the Taitā Gorge at the northern end of Lower Hutt, separating the city from neighbouring Upper Hutt. Lower Hutt includes the cluster of small settlements that extend down the eastern coast of Wellington Harbour. These include the two large townships of Wainuiomata (inland) and Eastbourne (Eastbourne, New Zealand) (on the coast). The city also includes a large area of sparsely-populated land to the east of the harbour, extending to Pencarrow Head and into the Rimutaka Ranges. Lower Hutt includes the islands in Wellington Harbour, the largest of which, Matiu Somes Island, is commonly referred to by its former name of Somes Island.

In May 24, 1852 Mr Hart Udy by mutual consent dissolved a Saw Milling partnership which he had with William Corbett and Richard Blake that was based in Stokes Valley, so it is assumed he had worked in the valley for a significant time before then. Wellington Independent, Volume VIII, Issue 696, 12 June 1852, Page 1 He moved to Stokes Valley in 1853, and resided there until 1857, when he took his family to Matarawa where he had access to valuable bush-clad land. A source says that Udy set up a sawmill at the valley mouth in 1858, but it doesn't make it clear whether this was the original one he dissolved in 1852 that he reactivated or an additional one. He carried on the family sawmilling business until 1865, when he retired leaving it to his sons. Mr Hart Udy, Jr., who was five years old when his parents arrived in 1840, married Elizabeth Holland of Petone in 1855, their first home being in Stokes Valley. He was also involved in his father's sawmilling business and moved with him to Matarawa. Mr Hart, Jr. later became Mayor of the Borough of Greytown (Greytown, New Zealand). Mr Hart Udy Sr died in 27 November 1890 in Greytown aged 82 from complications from a bone he had accidentally swallowed, he had 90 direct descendants, and was Justice of the peace of Greytown & greatly missed.

'''Lower Hutt''' ( ) is a city in the Wellington Region of the North Island of New Zealand. It is administered by the Hutt City Council and is one of the four cities that constitute the Wellington metropolitan area (Wellington).
It is New Zealand's seventh most populous city (List of cities in New Zealand), with a population of around the lower half of the Hutt Valley and the eastern shores of Wellington Harbour. It is separated from Wellington proper by the harbour, and from Upper Hutt by the Taitā Gorge.
Though it is administered by the Hutt City Council, neither the New Zealand Geographic Board nor the Local Government Act recognise the name Hutt City. This name has led to confusion, as Upper Hutt is administered by a separate city council, the Upper Hutt City Council, which objects to the name "Hutt City".
