Orca group seen off St Heliers beach this evening. Did anyone get a photo of the 3 Orca seen swimming along the shore line towards the city about 4:30 this afternoon? I was told one had a deformed dorsal fin and was with a small orca and an other larger one. It sounds like Orca Ben who I found on stranded on the beach at Mangawhai in 1997. We got him back into the water the next morning. About a year later his dorsal fin was cut by a boat propeller. I am keen to see a photo of the group tonight to know whether it was Ben.

Uncontrolled intensification

Raquel from Remuera

Dear all, while intensification in Auckland may be necessary, the way the Labour goverment has decided to implement it - supported by National and the Greens - will result in the loss of quality of life in many areas, not to mention other problems. And the worse part is that the resulting houses are actually more expensive and less affordable!
The Auckland Unitary Plan has already in place a project to increase the number of houses according to the infrastructure capacity, environment protection, traffic limits, character and heritage status of every area, at a cost of 75 million of ratepayers money. Why on earth this government wants to scrap it, build to the maximum every available piece of land without consideration of the impact, not even providing for parking on site? Why this legislation was passed so quickly without involving key stakeholders like councils and removing our right for resource consent?
Please take a look at this petition and sign if you agree that we have legitimate reasons to reject this legislation.
Together, we have the power to stop it:
