A trespass notice has been issued to a Wellington City councillor who turned up to a meeting despite being banned.

The Wellington City Council voted unanimously to bar Councillor Rob Goulden yesterday, after a series of disruptions culminating when he hurled abuse at other councillors and stormed out.

He sat in the public gallery this afternoon, and refused to leave when asked.

CEO Gary Poole then called police before reading out a trespass notice.

He told Councillor Goulden if he did not leave he would be arrested and the councillor then left.

Mr Goulden says he has taken legal advice on the issue.
