Nelson residents counting the cost of private way oversight

Tim Newman Reporter from The Nelson Mail

The residents of Henrietta Way in Nelson overlooked the fine print about the ownership of the road when the subdivision was set up in 2005.

Now they're stuck with a $24,000 road repair bill shared between eight households, and want to warn people in similar situations not to make the same mistake they did.

Have you experienced a similar predicament with a private way? Let us know in the comments below.

New guidelines warn businesses against making vague, exaggerated or inaccurate claims about the environmental impact of their goods and services, saying companies need to clearly explain limitations to headline claims.
