I was one of those invisible ratepayers who made submissions to the NPDC about our new $30M airport.
It was neither needed nor warranted in my opinion, our Mayor on the other hand opined that " it would keep the tills ringing" . So hows that going Neil?
While we were assured that it would not ever be a burden on the ratepayer, no sir not ever, it was entirely predictable that it would be given the councils, any councils, history of dabbling in commerce. It was just a matter of when and how!
And now they want another $20 million or so. Outrageous.
Its time the council was called to account and some resignations tendered . I'll hold my breath.
Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email email@example.com or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.
