Update on Tikipunga and Hikurangi Placemaking programmes

The Team from Whangarei District Council

Tikipunga and Hikurangi residents have been helping shape the development of their communities as part of our Placemaking programme. Thank you for your input last year!

Urban Designer Alicia Lawrie says the feedback received has helped identify opportunities, future projects and actions to include within these long-term neighbourhood spatial plans.

We've put updated summaries and reports on our website. We are now working on draft Placemaking Plans which the community can give feedback on before they are formally presented to Council for adoption later this year.

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in Whangārei?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Aucklanders who fled the city before this week’s Covid-19 alert level 3 restrictions came into force are already putting pressure on health services in Northland. Northland should be "an island" due to the Auckland restrictions, but both pharmacies and community leaders have noticed an influx of Aucklanders. Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in your neighbourhood? And what do you think about them?
