Proposed change to rubbish collection

Elly from Welcome Bay

Hi Everyone, while I was talking to the Council this morning on the flood zoning situation, I mentioned the proposed rubbish collection next year and the use of wheelie bins. Given Mike is disabled and I am semi-disabled and we have a very steep driveway, these bins would have been impossible for us. I received a communication this afternoon from the department in charge of rubbish collection who advise that there will be an assisted service form which will be available to fill in for those people like ourselves, to request this service. It means from my understanding the collectors will take your bins to the roadside, empty them and return them. I have asked Council to please post a message on Neighbourly when this form is available so everyone who is impacted can react.

Plan Change 27

Keegan from Papamoa Beach

Are you aware of the changes that Tauranga City Council is making to the operative city plan?

They’re very restrictive, and it doesn’t represent the needs and wants of our community.

You can view the material provided by TCC here: www.tauranga.govt.nz...

Make sure to view the mapping and see if your property is impacted.

I have prepared a submission template on my website - go to: keeganmillar.co.nz/reject-plan-change-27

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!
