What are your thoughts on new rules for Ninety Mile Beach/Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The iconic Ninety Mile Beach/Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe is about to come under a new beach management plan, which includes rules to help turn the tide on damage and neglect. It includes news speed limits on the beach of 60kmh, reducing to 30kmh within 200m of entrances. What do you think?

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
