High Street intersection - King Edward Street and Old Wharff Road

Louise from Motueka

Many of our local residents of Motueka and beyond including tourists who come into Motueka will be familiar with this intersection. Local residents have asked NZTA to redesign this intersection many times over the last 15 - 20 years and nothing has been done. Recently NZTA did a survey along the whole of High Street
and still nothing has been done. I cross this intersection twice daily and risk my life as hundreds of others do. I'm not sure about the truth of this statement but - 'if enough residents complain to NZTA they have to investigate the complaints regarding this intersection'. So I'm urging all local residents to email NZTA and complain about this dangerous intersection. Please share this will all local residents and people you know who come through High Street and King Edward Street on a regular basis and fear for their lives - MAYBE COLLECTIVELY we can achieve what so far has been 'ZILCH' and make NZTA sit up and take notice - THIS IS A DANGEROUS INTERSECTION! and needs remedial action ASAP!

Are six month rental terms causing a summer housing squeeze?

Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Six-month leases are becoming more common in Nelson as landlords realise they can gain more income from marketing their properties to tourists over summer.

Renters are finding themselves evicted at the busiest time of year, when everyone is looking for accommodation.

Has this happened to you or anyone you know? We'd love to hear your comments. You might be contacted for a story we'd like to do on six month rentals.

Challenge the unspoken rules

White Ribbon

A challenge facing too many young men is the sense that they have to live up to the unspoken rules of masculinity – clichés such as “boys don’t cry” and “toughen up”.

White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
