Driveways driven away by new rule

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A move to free up more land for new builds is likely to see fewer driveways and garages in modern housing, in a move some say could have New Zealand looking like Coronation Street.

Councils across the country must scrap planning rules that require car parks to be put down near new housing or business developments, under newly released housing guidelines.

The change comes as the Government looks to encourage development, in part by freeing up land held up by car parks, under its new National Policy Statement for urban development.

Property developer Phil Robinson said scrapping car park rules was a “big change”, but he was unsure if it was a “big win”.

What do you think of having more new builds in your area with fewer driveways and garages?

Blood pressure monitor

Letitia from Taradale

Hi there lovely neighbours.

Does anyone out there have an operational blood pressure monitor they are no longer using that I can have, borrow or buy off them. I had an operation and my blood pressure started mucking around. I’m back home now and want to keep an eye on it but unfortunately our monitor’s digital number are broken. 😟😟

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
