Hi neighbours,

A move to free up more land for new builds is likely to see fewer driveways and garages in modern housing, in a move some say could have New Zealand looking like Coronation Street.

Councils across the country must scrap planning rules that require car parks to be put down near new housing or business developments, under newly released housing guidelines.

The change comes as the Government looks to encourage development, in part by freeing up land held up by car parks, under its new National Policy Statement for urban development.

Hi neighbour,

About one in 14 workers say they expect to lose their job or business by mid-2021, according to data released by Stats NZ on Tuesday.

A survey of employed people in the June 2020 quarter showed 7 percent felt there was a high or almost certain chance of losing their job or business within the next 12 months. At a national level this represented 185,000 workers.

A further 18 percent (468,000) felt there was a medium chance, while 4 percent (105,000) stated they did not know what their job security was going to be over the following year.

Most people surveyed said there was little or no chance of losing their job or business (71 percent or 1,859,000).

Small businesses have been vulnerable during the pandemic. Self-employed people who did not have staff or employees of their own felt more insecure about losing their business than employees felt about losing their job. Ten percent of self-employed people without employees reported low job security, compared with 6 percent of employees.

The household labour force survey (HLFS) June 2020 quarter was collected over a three-month period from April to June and asked employed people about their perceived job security over the next 12 months. During the collection period, New Zealand dropped from COVID-19 alert level 4 in April to alert level 1 by June.

Blind Low Vision NZ, formerly the Blind Foundation, is seeking volunteers to support this year’s Blind Week street collection on October 16 and 17.

Volunteers play a crucial role in raising funds needed to provide practical and emotional support for New Zealanders who are blind, deafblind or have low vision.

“Last year’s street collectors raised over $220,000 to empower Kiwis living with vision loss to live the life they choose. We’re hoping to go even further this year but we need your help,” Blind Low Vision NZ chief executive John Mulka said.

The money raised goes towards providing personalised vision rehabilitation services for people who are blind, deafblind or have low vision to fulfil their goals - whether that’s providing adaptive technology to stay in employment, orientation and mobility training including guide dogs, or developing tools and strategies to keep doing the things they need and want to do.

Mulka said every day an average of six Kiwis turn to Blind Low Vision NZ for support with sight loss.

“Volunteering two hours of your time by shaking a bucket and collecting donations is a way that you can help make a difference in people’s lives,” he said.

As well as supporting individuals, Blind Low Vision NZ seek to make big-picture change by advocating for inclusive communities and for optimal eye care services for all New Zealanders.

To sign up to collect during Blind Week visit blindweek.org.nz or call 0800 787 743.

Hi neighbours,

A snorkel has been recalled over concerns it could be a choking hazard.

The Arena Swim Snorkel Pro II was pulled from sale after a customer complained a small piece of material came loose inside the snorkel tube.

No-one was injured but Arena found a potential risk with the black mouthpieces, which could see a small piece detach, causing a choking hazard.

Arena apologised to customers and said it would replace the faulty product to ensure customer safety and prevent further risk.

Anyone using an Arena snorkel was also advised to check it before use.

Customers who bought the Arena Swim Snorkel Pro II can register on the company’s website to receive replacement parts.

The new Tony Hawk video game has come under fire for an act of “cultural colonisation” after it used Māori tā moko as a character customisation option.

Players of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, which was released on Friday, are able to choose from a selection of indigenous-inspired facial tattoos, with one of the options labelled “Poly-face”.

Screenshots of the skateboarding game were posted to Twitter and shared by Pākehā/Māori tattoo artist @dreadconquest in a thread outlining why moko should not be used in this way.

Hi neighbours,

American Magic have recovered from a capsize of their America’s Cup boat in Auckland.

The United States syndicate tipped over Defiant while training on the eastern side of Browns Island in decent winds on Sunday.

They were able to quickly come upright again and continue sailing.

The incident further validates the safety elements in the design of the radical 75-foot foiling monohull.

American Magic weren’t commenting on the incident as a matter of team policy, other than to say they were able to complete “a full session” on Sunday.

QR codes will be displayed on public transport in Auckland as per Government requirements from Friday.

The bar codes will be displayed at the door during boarding, and at individual seats for easy scanning.

Auckland Transport recommends customers scan this QR code to help with contract tracing efforts if needed.

“To help things go smoothly for everyone, please have the Ministry of Health’s NZ COVID Tracer app open and ready to scan during boarding,” a statement read.

Auckland mayor Phil Goff said following the rules wil help keep ourselves and others safe and ensure that we can move out of Alert Level 2 as soon as possible.

“Keeping track of your movements with the NZ COVID Tracer app and ensuring that you are wearing a face covering are two simple ways we can help to constrain the spread of the virus,” he said.

In addition to scanning the Ministry of Health’s QR code, AT recommends that customers also register their AT HOP card to help with contact tracing.

This will also allow AT to monitor passenger numbers and make fast adjustments to services if required due to changes in demand.

Face coverings are also mandatory on public transport, as per Government’s advice.

Hi neighbours,

Auckland mayor Phil Goff has welcomed the decision for the city to stay at alert level 2.5 until September 14, advising Aucklanders it was crucial to “stay the course”.

Goff said the Government’s decision was the right one and asked Aucklanders to continue following the rules so the city could return to level 1 as soon as possible.

“But it’s crucial that we stay the course. While we are all looking forward to level 1, the last thing we want is to move too early and risk a further resurgence of the virus,” he said.

“That would be the worst outcome – not only would it endanger the health and safety of Aucklanders, including some of our most vulnerable communities, it would also further damage businesses and the economy and put the gains we have made so far at risk.”
