Poll: Do you support the new rules to build more homes?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.

Sue from Motueka

Hi everyone, I guess we are all feeling the heat and our paddocks are getting very dry with no rain in the forecast. We have 200 bales of this season's meadow hay - cut, baled and stored without getting wet. Perhaps some of you need to stock up in case the price per bale goes up - our bales are shed stored the hay is very good. The price is $8.00 per bale. Pls txt 0275443002 if you would like to buy a few bales or the lot :) Staple Street area.
