Parking charges in central Christchurch could skyrocket

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

It's true. Avocados for just $0.09

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

A Christchurch green grocer is selling avocados for just $0.09, which is 3 per cent of the cost you’d otherwise be paying at a supermarket.

Avocados across the country are selling for about $2. A Countdown special has them at $2.50 each, down from $2.75. Other green grocers have avocados listed for $1.99.

But, Vegeland on Marshland Rd has been selling avocados for just 9¢ each.

Will you be paying them a visit?

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
