What a 1 km buffer around Wellington schools would look like

Thanks to Rupert for producing this map of showing what a one km buffer around schools would look like. Some health activists advocate such a buffer for dairies and this week a buffer for convicted sex offenders.

As you can see such a buffer is absolutely unworkable. To live or have a dairy outside the buffer would mean either camping out at Wellington Airport, or maybe in the Seaview industrial zone.
