Hi neighbours,

Is begging an issue in your Auckland community? Rough sleeping and begging within five metres of retail buildings in Tauranga has been banned after a controversial bylaw was passed. But it's got people wondering - could it work in Auckland too? To read more about this, click here.

Do you think a ban would make a difference here or is it a terrible idea? What other options could be looked into? Are you a business owner or customer with thoughts on the topic? Share your views and suggestions with us in the replies below!

It's third-time lucky for the design for this intersection! Here is the revised proposal which is back to being a roundabout (something I'm happy with!). Have your say on the design at the below link.

Auckland Transport are proposing to install a new roundabout at the intersection of Bentley and Chartwell Avenues, including removal of the existing slip lane and construction of pedestrian refuge islands and raised zebra crossings. This intersection has been identified as high risk with an existing crash pattern between vehicles travelling northbound along Chartwell Avenue and vehicles turning right into Bentley Avenue from the northern leg of Chartwell Avenue. Although we have previously consulted on alternative layouts at this location, we believe that the proposed would provide the most safety benefits for drivers and people walking at this location by raising awareness and clarifying priority at the intersection.

Stalwart boxing supporter and North Shore resident, Dave Cameron, is handing over a rare boxing trophy to Auckland Boxing.
The trophy, for the most successful trainer in the amateur champs, was first awarded in 1926 was last awarded in 1956.
Dave said the trophy was awarded annually and should have been returned to The Northern Boxing Association at end of each year.
However, the trophy was found under a house in South Auckland a couple of years ago and ended up on Dave's doorstep. Dave is a collector of boxing memorabilia but he is handing this one over.
