Hi Neighbours, With one week until Auckland Councillors decide this year's rates rise, and the size of the Covid-19 hit Emergency Budget, public feedback on rates is fairly evenly split. How much do you think your's should rise? Read the story below:
Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough.
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
If a luxurious hotel in California can be built from recycled shipping containers, then explain to me why on earth should we be currently experiencing such a severe housing shortage in our country?
This great idea should meet all the needs of the eco warriors out there and the people's need to purchase their first home.
A green roof and solar panels could also be added along with using recycled or environmentally friendly products in the build and design.
I do know that people are building homes out of them, but come on all of councils nationwide, the Government and every person out there ... this idea solves so many problems and all the while building up greenie points with the eco groups out there.
