Aucklanders warned to brace for tornadoes, thunderstorms and power cuts

Brittany Keogh Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours, Vector has warned Auckland residents to prepare for tornadoes, thunderstorms and gales that could lead to power cuts during the next 24 to 36 hours. The company says people should charge their devices and power banks, tie down objects that could be swept up in strong winds, such as BBQs or trampolines, and make sure they had a torch and spare batteries handy, as well as alternative fuel for cooking.

Proposed development on Brenton Place - off kepa Rd

Andrew from Orakei

Housing NZ (to use their correct name) are proposing to demolish 6 housing "units" (3 buildings) and replace them with a inappropriately sized 7-storey tower block totalling 49 units

This will be a trojan horse for an eventual 3 blocks totalling 140 units.

This has been non-notified - apart from the school

The school will shortly commence a fundraising drive to procure expert advice.

The whole development will be 100% HNZ tenants which is acknowledged as poor practice - a 1:1:1 mix of HNZ, 3rd rental and private ownership is considered best practice for community cohesion.

Please show your support for the school to stop this ghastly development
