Poll: Do you support the new rules to build more homes?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.

2017 Santa bear

Craig from Johnsonville

Hi everyone,
Unfortunately, our son's beloved Santa bear got too close to the fireplace and has been damaged. We're reaching out to see if anyone might have a 2017 Santa bear that they no longer want? We are happy to pay for it.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
