E-bikes on the trails are growing, but it seems their manners are lacking.

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Battery-powered mountainbikers are becoming mainstream, with more e-bikes being sold to mountainbikers than commuters in Nelson but they're being reminded to use their manners when coming across conventional bikes. Have you had any bad experiences out on trails, either on your e-bike or conventional bike, or does it all seem friendly on the tracks? Let us know.

Nelson City Council - sea level rise

Cally from Atawhai

Nelson City Council has obviously decided that sea level rise is less of a problem than it was, as they have removed my house inundation notice from the LIM report that they issued last November. They were using a 2m rise for all their planning. However it has dropped to 1.5m.

I rather think this has more to do in wanting to push through a $44M state of the art, "better than Te Papa", Vanity, Eco Building Project on the river front, creating lots of waste and using "mitigation" to stop the sea coming in, rather than hoping the sea will stop rising!
