Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years.

With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you. Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Free buses this weekend

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

To celebrate World Car Free day, all bus trips, including the $4 late-bus service will be free for all passengers this weekend!

Nelson City Council said this initiative is about "finding ways to take individual action to reduce emissions", and Car Free Day "speaks for itself".

Happy travelling, neighbours!
