Is the donations scheme fair?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Do you have a child at a high decile school that can't opt into the Government's donations scheme, effective next year? Some decile 8-10 schools say their communities are no wealthier than those at neighbouring lower decile schools, and they should be allowed to sign up to the programme … View moreDo you have a child at a high decile school that can't opt into the Government's donations scheme, effective next year?

Tree Notice Issues

A complete and reasonable request which I had meant to do in winter but couldn't get my expert arborist to do it. Problem is, thanks to government legislation under Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 I am now required to notify Network Tasman 3 days prior to the work being done but, horrifyingly, I can't use my own arborist, I am only allowed to use an arborist certified by Network Tasman. I look for a list of arborists permitted but what do I see - there is only one - Treescape. I immediately smell a rat. If there is only one certified company in this region then I can be charged whatever they want to. There is no guarantee that they will prune the tree to a standard I wish for either. I then began looking throughout NZ to find out what the situation is elsewhere and what do I spy - Treescape's name coming up everywhere. In many other places they are also the only option. Next stop - the Commerce Commission because this is appalling. This is anti-competitive and stinks of cronyism. If I do not use Treescape (who incidentally operate via a call centre and have not got in touch with me in the 4 days since I phoned and they took my details), I can be fined by the Govt up to $10,000. Has anyone else experienced this issue and have the same concerns? I am feeling a bit like NZ is morphing into something akin to the old Soviet Union.

Has your travel been disrupted by the SH6 closure?

Hannah Bartlett Reporter from The Nelson Mail

A slip caused by heavy rain has closed a section of SH6 north of Murchison. There's a detour in place that sends motorists right onto SH63 through St Arnaud, then left onto Korere-Tophouse Road and continues to SH6, with the reverse in place for southbound traffic. Have you been affected?
