House needed urgently!!

Jaime from Northpark

Hi, urgently needing a 2-3 brm house for me and my nearly 5 year old daughter who starts school in Howick next month so needs to be in same ish area..her brother and sister often come to stay so 3 brm ideally, we have a 16ft tramp so need a decent size yard, also love to fit the jungle gym but not a deal breaker! We have no pets, glowing references from current and previous landlords, clean record, non smoker, agents dont bother answering its extremely frustrating as we are fast running out of time to find somewhere, comfortably our budget is $570 but could stretch to $600 max if no other options come up, have been searching all the online listings tirelessly, thought i would try my luck and post on here just in case somebody knows of something and makes my day, thanks!!! 0224992863

Poll: Auckland's super-city: One decade on: Is local government running more efficiently?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

It's been 10 years since Auckland's new super-city was formed, forged from eight legacy councils.

For Aucklanders who have lived through the massive overhaul, do you think local government is running more smoothly?

Auckland Council's first year was far from smooth with the Occupy protest, the Rugby World Cup opening night transport debacle, a battle with central government over funding the inner-city rail loop, and a contest of wills over delegating powers to local boards and council-controlled organisations.

Auckland's inaugural super mayor Len Brown hailed it a success.

"Generally 2011 has been a good first year for the council, " Brown said in 2012.

"We've brought the region together... At the same time we have driven $81 million in efficiencies and reduced the inherited 9.3 per cent rates increase down to 3.9 per cent."

The boundaries of the new super city were unveiled in 2010.

Super city Auckland was divided into 13 wards with 21 local boards.
