Does Auckland need a ban on begging?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Is begging an issue in your Auckland community? Rough sleeping and begging within five metres of retail buildings in Tauranga has been banned after a controversial bylaw was passed. But it's got people wondering - could it work in Auckland too? To read more about this, click here.

Do you think a ban would make a difference here or is it a terrible idea? What other options could be looked into? Are you a business owner or customer with thoughts on the topic? Share your views and suggestions with us in the replies below!
