Judith Collins bill proposing a new law giving city councils powers to fast-track building more houses.

Dianne from Hamilton East

Im unclear whether she drafted this bill but regardless, I believe her solution is an excellent one. Surely councils have designated land for housing in the past, I dont know, could someone fill me in on this, and if not, then yes Judith, I totally agree, it should be rushed through, the chronic lack of affordable (and please note that word) housing is an abomination and is an indictment on our society as a whole.

new HCC targeted rate

Geraldine from Frankton

While watching the online council discussions today I learnt that the 5 year targeted 'govt compliance' rate of 4.5% will after the 5 years carry on and be added into the general rate, not come to an end as I had assumed. So 8.9% will then be the baseline for rates increases. The council is getting better and better at hiding the details.
