Would you like a property somewhere like this?

Libby Totton Reporter from Waikato Times

A recent forced sale has freed up one of the last large hilltop swathes of Raglan for potential development.

Last Friday, 21 Upper Wainui Road, a property with two dwellings, 2.6 hectares of land and stunning coastal views, went under the hammer in a court-ordered sale, reaching a final price of $2,040,000.

What do you think of the mayor's suggestion?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hamilton’s mayor wants to cut a 19.9% rates increase proposed for next year - and she’d support selling some city council asset sales to help.

Paula Southgate said she wants to pull the increase back towards the originally proposed 16.3%, which would be challenging but could make a $100-a-year difference for the average Hamilton home.

Poll: Should Hamilton City Council shrink the number of councillors?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

A political bunfight is brewing over moves to cut councillor numbers on Hamilton City Council.

Potential mayoral candidate Tim Macindoe, supported by four others, has asked Thursday’s meeting to agree to a representation report that covers replacing the current east-west split with one city-wide ward.

It also seeks consideration of cutting representative numbers from 15 - including 12 general councillors spread over two wards, two Māori ward representatives and the mayor - to 11.
