'Carless' apartments looking for tenants

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

This is the changing face of housing in our suburbs as determined by Auckland's Unitary Plan. But this pioneering project in Sandringham is for renters, not buyers.

Project to turn Auckland's empty roof space into gardens gets off the ground

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?

Our underappreciated local MP

Peter from Half Moon Bay

I recently had a difficult and complex issue with a government department, and tried several avenues to seek assistance, including my local MP, Simeon Brown, who has done the most to try to help me by far. He listened sympathetically and did eveything within his power to try to resolve the issue, more than anyone else I have dealt with on this.

I was very impressed with his good attitude, kindness, understanding and willingness to help. He really is a gem, and it would be great if there were more like him in power. Friends and others I have mentioned him to also speak of him highly. He is clearly a committed and hard working MP and a good man. I know where my electorate vote is going without a doubt!
