Poll: Are you able to afford your own home?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Housing affordability is getting worse for Kiwis - especially in Auckland.

About four in five people renting are unable to comfortably afford mortgage payments, recent Government statistics show. Many Kiwis are fleeing expensive cities like Auckland in search of affordable housing in the regions - and they're not looking back.

Mayoral candidate questions chlorinated water decision of NCC

Pauline from Hospital Hill

Napier mayoral candidate Kirsten Wise says she plans to question why the city's water supply needs to be chlorinated. One of the main issues for her is that Christchurch City Council is on target to be 98% chlorine free by June. "That raises the question for me, if they can achieve that, and their aquifer is nowhere near as good as ours, then why can't we achieve that?"
She'll need community support so please sign the PETITION FOR CHLORINE FREE WATER available at Crazy Good Cafe in Bridge St Ahuriri, or email p.doyle@hotmail.com www.nzherald.co.nz...
