Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?
The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.
With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?
Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Auckland City Council has informed us that due to Covid-19, our inorganic collection scheduled, booked and paid (via rates) due to happen in September 2020 has now been postponed to February 2021. We contacted ACC and posed the question: ‘does this mean we will get 2 inorganic collections in 2021?”. Response: “don’t know, wait and see”. Before becoming a Super City, we use to have inorganic every six months and our rates were much lower. Since the amalgamation our rates keep increasing and we only have one inorganic per annum and we even missed out totally some years. ACC really know how to stuff you around, no transparency or honesty. You just have to suck it up and continue paying. Has anybody else been informed about this postponement?
