Poll: Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.

Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.

The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.

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.
