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?

Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools?

The team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?
