What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Sons Bike Stolen From Fitzroy Dairy

Renée from Fitzroy

KiaOra koutou
Our 14 year old son has had his bike stolen at approximately 4.30pm from outside the dairy in Fitzroy next to the TAB. He was only in store for a minute and some sad opportunist stole his bike. It is his only mode of transport to NPBHS and was bought new for his birthday 14 months ago. It is a black Trek mountain bike like the picture below.. Anyone with any information could you please message me or leave a message on 0212727106. Thank you in advance, Renée

Poll: NPDC 10 years plan - What's next?

Charles from Lynmouth - Moturoa

It is now time to put pressure on our elected representatives to make sure they give your submission due consideration.

Were you a NPDC rate payer around 2000; on a fixed/limited income; paid in the vicinity of the minimum wage or just fed up with the Council ignoring rate payer wishes.

If so do you think it is fair for the Council to sit on $300million while expecting us to keep coughing up.
