Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

Watercare ups charges yet delivers appalling service

Barbara from Northcote

Has anyone had similar experiences with Watercare of late?
On 3 May this year, Watercare reported a leak at our property. I employed plumbers to find and repair the leak. The cost was nearly $1000. As it turned out, the leak was Watercare's problem. After 11 weeks and umpteen emails to them, … View more
Has anyone had similar experiences with Watercare of late?
On 3 May this year, Watercare reported a leak at our property. I employed plumbers to find and repair the leak. The cost was nearly $1000. As it turned out, the leak was Watercare's problem. After 11 weeks and umpteen emails to them, they have failed to reimburse me for my costs.
Phil Goff, in a recent public statement, spoke of Watercare's ''accountability'' and ''responsiveness.'' Watercare's Chief Customer Officer, Amanda Singleton, describes herself as ''a passionate customer advocate'' and being responsible for ''all customer touch points'' (whatever they are) ''in the business.'' After this month's increases to water charges - with yet more to come - it feels as if they're taking us for fools.

Onewa Road Updates

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

Here are a few updates on Onewa Road:

* T3 Cameras: There has been a delay with the installation of the T3 cameras due to an issue getting power to the sites. Vector contractors will be working on this from late-July to mid-August. The cameras should then be live from mid- to late-August. For the first 3 weeks, warning letters will be sent to anyone breaching the T3 rules.

* Clearway: The result of the clearway public consultation was strongly in favour of a clearway. Auckland Transport are due to present the detailed results to the Kaipātiki Local Board soon.

* Red light cameras: I've been asked by a number of people for red light cameras at the intersection of Onewa Rd/Lake Rd due to vehicles running the red and endangering children crossing the road to/from Northcote Primary School. Auckland Transport have advised me that red light cameras are managed by the Police and they have asked the Police to consider installing cameras at this site.

* Traffic light phasing for Onewa Rd/Lake Rd and Onewa Rd/Queen St: I've been contacted by people frustrated that morning traffic turning from Lake Rd onto Onewa Rd are being blocked for several cycles of the traffic lights by Onewa Road traffic that is stopped at the the Queen St intersection. Auckland Transport say: "Auckland Transport have looked at these two staged intersections and have chosen a specific phasing combination to keep Onewa Road flowing, as it is a strategically important corridor for buses. Furthermore, we have already allowed more green time for those coming from Lake Road but are limited by prioritising Onewa Road. Currently, we will not be making any changes to the traffic light phasing at the intersections of Queen Street and Onewa Road and Lake Road and Onewa Road."
