Vogeltown businesses unhappy about street revamp. Are you affected?

The team Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

Businesses involved in a New Plymouth street revamp are petitioning against the proposed changes because of the potential of more than a dozen parking spaces being removed.

Shaina Groombridge, owner of Headz Upp, said "it's hard to find a carpark in the area as it was" and she's "fighting for her business but at the same time she's fighting for the community".

What are your thoughts? Will your business be affected or do you think these changes are for the better?

Roundup spraying in parks and reserves.

Hez from Brooklands - Vogeltown

Perhaps the council could consider signs at park entrances before spraying herbicides in future. The spray operators wear masks, but people and dogs can't, and the areas could be avoided if they were alerted. Today large areas were sprayed, there was a strong odour, and roundup could be a carcinogen. Please, council? What do others think?

Looking for a place to call home?

Angela from Angela Sefton @ Bayleys Taranaki

I have a great new family home coming to market, close to Frankley and Woodleigh schools and handy to FDMC. 3 bed plus study, large conservatory and outdoor patio areas for entertaining. All in a quiet cul de sac off the very popular Frankley Road. Buyers in the $400,000's encouraged to view. If you have missed out before, don't miss this one. More info very soon.
