What do you think of the nine-month toxic chemical clean-up underway?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Authorities are bearing the $3m costs of a nine-month clean-up of a toxic chemical stockpile at Marsden Point, Ruakaka, but hope to recover the costs from the companies involved. The work is so dangerous, regular monitoring is needed to test for explosive or flammable air.

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?
