Poll: What do you think of plans to restrict trawl fishing in the Hauraki Gulf?

Melanie Earley Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora neighbours, trawl fishing will be restricted and marine protection areas will be expanded almost threefold under a new plan to protect Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf.

Do you think the new restrictions are a good idea?

Watercare and water leaks

Nova from Henderson

For almost seven months, I have been asking Watercare to fix a potable water leak outside 20 Alderman Drive in Henderson. Today the dams are at 59%. The historical average is 84%. We may have severe water restrictions this summer and yet Watercare doesn't seem to be efficient about fixing leaks. This week I got a text from them saying the leak had been fixed, and yet it is still leaking, possibly creating a pothole in the road and making the footpath slippery. Is the proposed 3 Waters thing going to make a positive difference?
