Auckland Council needs to stop driving people out of their homes.

Jay from New Lynn

Every house in New Lynn is now being sold as a "development opportunity". Intensive terraced and multiunit developments are going up everywhere driving existing residents out of their homes and resulting in massive loss of greenspace and trees. This council clearly doesn't give a toss about climate change. These new developments are purely for the benefit of offshore investors who are still allowed to buy new builds. Many of the new units are still empty, priced out of reach of first home buyers. Now a massive new 5 storey development is planned for Rata Street plus others in the neighbourhood. They are all issued non notified consents in spite of multiple infringements. This council needs to be held accountable.

A question of 'rights'?🤔

Fiona from Henderson

A quick question (or 3) for you all.
Do we as customers, have the right to ask for proof of a negative COVID test if we are being attended to by someone who has a continuous cough and sniffs a lot, even though this person was wearing a mask?
If said customer service rep says it's allergies and also throws in for good measure that they have been tested negative for COVID, do we ask to see proof of that result?
Do you mention it to management and risk being treated with hostility when you return?
If you can't be attended by anyone else apart from that person, what would you do?
