Have an opinion on how your city should look, feel and operate in the years ahead? It's time to let us know what you think.
Initial engagement on the review of Lower Hutt's district plan - the city's rule book for land use and development - is underway.
It covers major issues like housing supply and affordability, how we'll manage natural hazards and sea level rise, and protect natural habitats, right down to what you can do on your property and what your neighbours can do on theirs.
For more information and to have your say, go to the link below. Or if you're in the neigbourhood, come and talk to us this Saturday 24 April. We'll be with the 10 Year Plan team at the Naenae Village Market between 11am and 1pm.
This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
Technically it is not a Feathered Friend but this a lovely pic from Rosa Marie after her recent visit to Zealandia. Weta used to be much more common, when was the last time you saw a weta in your garden?
