We're hitting the road!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We're hitting the road in the lead up to our 10th celebration of Neighbours Day Aotearoa. As we drive across the country we’ll be running workshops and reaching out to meet people who are working to create great neighbourhoods across New Zealand. These interactive workshops are for anyone planning a Neighbours Day Event, or supporting other people.

Come along, share ideas, and get the support you need to put on a great Neighbours Day Aotearoa event! Check out our Road Trip page on our website for a list of our confirmed destinations and scheduled workshops, be sure to check back soon as we confirm further workshops.

Chartwell Ave/Bentley Ave, Glenfield, Roundabout Proposal:

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board Member

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.

Does Auckland need a ban on begging?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

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!
