Southern Link Inland Route Option

Alan from Nelson South

The cost of maintaining and repairing Rocks Road is currently met by the government through NZTA funding. Moving SH6 from there will mean that any future costs for repairing and maintaining this route will be met by Nelson City Council ratepayers. This will likely bring a large increase in their annual rates, and of course rents for those renting. Let all those supporting the Inland Route Southern Link option declare which local council they pay rates to, and that they support any rates increase for Nelson residents so we can see how vested their support really is. I would also invite Nick Smith’s comments on New Zealand being a signatory to a United Nations Treaty on Environmental Protection that prohibits moving a source of pollution from one urban population to another, which the Southern Link proposal would certainly do. Is he aware of this and is he advocating that New Zealand pull out of this treaty?

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.
