The Perfect do up in Mt Wellington

Pete from

ON SITE AUCTION - Sunday 27th October at 1:00pm (unless sold prior)

The kids are all grown up and nana is moving to the rest home so mum and dad have decided its time to move on!
This amazing opportunity is waiting just for you and we all know that the location of this home is just simply irresistible. Our sellers have instructed us to auction this home, mainly because they know that a fair amount of work will be needed to be done and that they would love to give everyone a fair shot at owning this home. It's not often that we get vendors who are completely aware of what needs to be done.
You cannot afford to miss out on this one...Location, location, location and very realistic vendors.

Poll: Do you support a rates rise of 5 per cent in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.

The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.

The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comments used by Stuff.

Water tank charge hike in rural Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

From March 1, it will cost rural communities more to fill up their water tanks.

The cost to fill a tanker with 10,000 litres of water will rise by about $25 from $13.86 to $39 (+GST).

It reflects the cost of providing water at filling stations- a service which has been heavily subsidised for many years, Watercare says.

The new charge comes into force during the summer peak to reduce pressure on rural and coastal communities.

For those of you in rural Auckland on tank water, what is your view on the increase?

And your reasons?

Poll: Do you agree with the proposed congestion charge of $3.50?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Drivers could be taxed $3.50 to enter the CBD during peak hour.

The congestion charge of up to $3.50 could be implemented within three years under a proposal unveiled by officials.

It is hoped a congestion charge would spur people to leave their cars behind but there are concerns those who are less well off could feel the pinch.
