Illegal rubbish dumping

Denise Lee from Denise Lee MP

Who else is sick of seeing Panmure and other local areas being used as Auckland’s dumping ground?

I was sent this photo of Dunkirk Road today. Serious action is needed to stop this happening again, and I will be talking with Council and the Local Board to make sure it gets immediate attention.

Parking on Berms!

Hi everyone,

Just sharing a bit of information which I have just found out. It is ok to park on the berm as long as visibility is not compromised (eg. Can see oncoming traffic if leaving your driveway).

Very frustrating if you have rubbish/recycling bin collection, as the trucks would have issues with accessing the bins, not all truck drivers are willing to get out and move them, and that’s understandable.
This is if there are cars also parked out on the road as well as the berm.

So council no longer do infringements for this type of parking. However. If it is blocking a driveway, a tow truck is sent out straight away to remove the vehicle.

Apparently it was changed only a few months ago. So quite recent.

Hi neighbours,

Are you in need of some tips for cutting down your grocery bill? Auckland blogger Stacey Sampson might be able to help.

After a financial emergency drained her and her husband of all their savings, they were left with just $60 in their bank account to feed their three kids.

Now every month she does a "cheap week" that helps cut costs and minimise food wastage. To read about Stacey and her food tips, click here.

"This month we've done it twice to save some extra for Christmas," she says.

Is this something that you do in your family? Or is it something you'd like to try? Share your thoughts, or your own grocery tips to help your neighbours, in the replies below.
