Kia ora neighbours, Formosa Golf Club must pay $86,000 for pumping untreated sewage into the environment.

Poll: Do you agree with the proposed congestion charge of $3.50?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

The congestion charge of up to $3.50 could be implemented within three years under a proposal unveiled by officials.
