HALCOMBE GLASS GONE BUT THEN THREATENED WITH $200,000 FINE IF I DON'T GO

Firstly I would like to thank all those that supported me from Neighborly in the fight to get the glass bins moved.
Quick history: Halcombe Community Committee decided that the best place to put glass collection bins was less than a meter from my boundary fence, in a residential area. Only 1 neighbor was consulted. After 2 years the Council admitted there were no resource consents. A noise test was done but I never saw the results. I had the glass noise tested and it was 20 decibels over the allowed 45 decibels. I have owned my land here for 20 years and pay $2,000 a year in rates but I got no say. The Halcombe CC put on the internet that I am living here illegally and have no rights at all. Many nasty comments followed from those that wanted the 24/7 access glass bins to stay on my boundary fence. Bullying is never OK Halcombe! I have not heard of anyone volunteering to have the recycling center next to them.
2 hours after I asked the Council for the Resource Consents a Council worker unlawfully jumped over my locked gate while I was not home. Unaccompanied he was peering in my windows, opening doors to my private buildings, went inside one building and took photos of my personal belongings which the council then went on to share over the internet. I was then sent a Notice to Fix (also known in the Tiny House world as an eviction notice) to comply or leave my property by Feb 7th or get a $200,000 fine. Rate payer money has been used to pay lawyers in Auckland to try and make me homeless. United Nations say our Homeless crisis is a human rights violation.

This is when Fair Go was contacted and they very kindly came down to do the story. This will be aired this Monday at 7:30pm.

Can a recent high school graduate match - and beat - a seasoned politician for the people's vote?

Ata mārie kiritata,

The city's urban dwellers are about to meet Manawatū's rural dags for the annual Rural Games in Palmerston North's square.

More than 25,000 people are expected to come to town over two days, with national and international audiences through media, social media and television coverage.

Five per cent of the $1 million event is supported the city council, but the games trust's chairman Margaret Kouvelis wants a greater contribution to the games.

Should council contribute more?
