Poll: Do you support the city council's move to help deliver affordable housing?

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi everyone,

A housing shakeup is planned for Waikato, aimed at helping people get out of unstable renting situations.

At its heart is a trust which would own land and charge a "peppercorn lease" to people who own or rent houses on it.

Hamilton City Council is setting aside $2 million to start the trust and has been talking with various community groups - but hopes it will attract more contributors and go Waikato-wide.

What do you think of the plan? Should the city council be tackling these kinds of issues?

Mass transit network

Jamie Neighbourly Lead from Chartwell

A potential vision of a future Hamilton and surrounding towns, incorporating rail as a key feature of our public transport network, primarily using existing tracks.

Also, this week Ministry of Transport signed off on completing a business case for rapid rail between Ham and Akld (around one hour from CBD to CBD), to be completed in April 2020.

Margaret from Fairview Downs

My husband has box of old recipe books and newspaper articles from around 1940. Does anyone know of any group that may be interested. Seems shame to trash this history. Free to good home,
