If I decide to vote National I will vote for euthanasia. If I vote for Labour I 'may' vote against it. I don't fancy our chances of top class hospital care if they face short funding yet again even without another covid-19 wave.. Health care has not recovered from the last National innings and remains under funded. Even privatisation has been sniffed at in the past. Is that a possibility? The choice of lives saved versus the economy exposes serious and sensitive moral values. Covid-19 doesn't have morals.
Every house in New Lynn is now being sold as a "development opportunity". Intensive terraced and multiunit developments are going up everywhere driving existing residents out of their homes and resulting in massive loss of greenspace and trees. This council clearly doesn't give a toss about climate change. These new developments are purely for the benefit of offshore investors who are still allowed to buy new builds. Many of the new units are still empty, priced out of reach of first home buyers. Now a massive new 5 storey development is planned for Rata Street plus others in the neighbourhood. They are all issued non notified consents in spite of multiple infringements. This council needs to be held accountable.
Due to the long weekend, the council's kerbside collections will be one day later from 26 – 31 October.
