Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.

Stray cats

Taito from Manurewa

I'm not even sure whether covid19 lockdowns has had any real or detriment impacts to our vet clinics (ie. there appear to be a shortage of vets), or the ability and capacity for animal shelters to take in more stray cats.

We've had 3 kittens hanging around our place (now about 5months old) we've been feeding but not wanting to home/adopt them (we have 1 of our own), trying to find a shelter that could find homes for them but no luck so far. I found one of them this morning sprawled out on the lawn, he hadn't been looking too well recently, but found him stone cold, faintly breathing. Grateful to the clinic for bumping him up the long waiting queue, unfortunately much to my devastation he had passed away by the time we got there. Now I am more determined to find homes for the remaining 2. If anyone knows any shelters that could take these 2 in the meantime until they get homed, I would greatly appreciate it.
I'd be willing to take care of their vet bills and provide food for them as well as assist find homes for them. I'm still reaching out to more shelters, the ones that have gotten back to me are unable to take them in so I'm hoping you would know of anyone that could help.
Thank you!

Play Streets to Roll out in Takanini

Playing on the street with neighbours once proved a common sight in South Auckland.

Children would ride their bikes and compete in cricket matches.

Healthy Families South Auckland is launching a Play Streets initiative to revive this childhood tradition and encourage neighbours to socialise more.

On April 24, the pilot event will see cars banned temporarily from Cunningham Place in Takanini to pave the way for fun seeking residents.

Healthy Families South Auckland Lead Systems Innovator Fila Fuamatu said when streets were safe, neighbours and whanau could connect.

"The residents of Te Mahia are very concerned about their tamariki who spend a lot of time indoors using technology devices but not getting physically active or connecting with others in the neighbourhood."

Fuamatu said she hoped the event would empower members of the community to create opportunities for their own play and future social events.

“The residents, many of whom are elderly or have health issues, love having the opportunity to work together and give back. They’re a real creative bunch so I’m excited to see what they come up with."

Part of Waka Kotahi's Innovating Streets programme, Play Streets is managed by Auckland Council, Healthy Families South Auckland and Healthy Families Waitakere.

What are some of your early memories of street games?

I remember the old elastics game, skipping and hopscotch.

Which games would you like to see making a comeback in your streets?
