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?

Website Design and Social Media

Marina Kere from KDM Digital - Social Media and Web Design

Hi Neighbours!

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Marina Kere and I own KDM Digital. I have previously worked in marketing roles at local companies and online promoting products through my personal platforms for the past 4 years. Also, I am currently in my last year of my Bachelor of Commerce Majoring in Marketing and Front-End Web Design studies at NMIT.

KDM Digital is a company in Nelson Tasman NZ that raises awareness for businesses online through digital channels such as social media management and website design.

I have noticed that many businesses are still not using websites and social media pages to promote their business effectively where there is potential for these companies to reach a wider audience to further grow their businesses, create brand awareness and increase sales.

88 percent of consumer pre-research their buys online before making a purchase either online or in-store. This highlights the importance of having an online presence through social media and websites.

Nutrition and Cooking Classes for Elderly People

Sally from The Brook

In association with the Nutrition Foundation and the generous support of the Nelson City Council we are holding another 4 week block of classes starting Nov 3rd. Each class is 3 hours long and consists of a nutrition talk (meal planning, reading and understanding food labels, stretching your budget, etc) Followed by a demonstration by your tutor and then you will cook the same recipe. We sit down to eat together and after cleaning up, depart for home.


This is also an opportunity to get to know more people and after the classes we may meet up in a local cafe. Please see details in the flyer.


Please note these classes are aimed at people who lack motivation to cook for themselves and need more confidence and skills in the kitchen. Sorry, it is NOT for people looking for more ideas for their cooking repetoire. The course includes fairly basic recipes from a 50 page recipe booklet that you will take home.
