Cambridge and Matamata's roads have been deemed "not complex enough" for practical driving tests confusing residents who say neighbouring Morrinsville's roads are less complex, yet they have a test centre.

​Waipā District Council wrote to NZTA, requesting a return of the practical tests to Cambridge, but were knocked back.

#HAMILTON CITY #PROSTITUTION BYLAW

Rudi from Hamilton Lake

#HAMILTON CITY #PROSTITUTION BYLAW - You can give feedback from 1 July to 1 August 2019 - I support Retaining the existing Bylaw. - Read the document to see why.

#HAMILTON CITY #PROSTITUTION BYLAW - You can give feedback from 1 July to 1 August 2019 - I support Retaining the existing Bylaw. - Read the document to see why.

Overview
Hamilton City Council (the Council) is seeking feedback following the review of the Hamilton City Prostitution Bylaw 2009.
Why are we doing this?
The Bylaw was last reviewed in 2009 as per the Local Government Act 2002 requirements. The Council is required to review the existing bylaw every 10 years by law. This provides an opportunity for the Council to check in with our community on how the Bylaw is working and consider feedback.
Council consulted on the Bylaw between 18 March and 18 April 2019. An internal review identified a process risk so this second consultation seeks to complete the consultation process.
The Council has determined that:
the current Hamilton City Council Prostitution Bylaw is the most appropriate means of controlling the issue of prostitution services in Hamilton City; and
the Bylaw is not inconsistent with the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 because the limits it places on the rights and freedoms contained within that Act can be demonstratively justified in a free and democratic society.
The Council proposes to continue the current Bylaw unamended.
OPTIONS
In compliance with the LGA, the Council provides two options. The Council wants to consult on its intention to continue the current Bylaw unamended. If you do not think the Bylaw should be continued unamended, then the Council would like to know why. Tell us your views either way in the feedback form below.
Retain the existing Bylaw (preferred)
The Council believes it is appropriate to keep the current Bylaw without making any changes because the Bylaw has operated well over the last 10 years and is considered fit for purpose.
Retaining the current Bylaw means:
A brothel must be in the shaded area in the Bylaw map AND at least 100m away from a school, early childhood centre, marae and/or places of worship.
A premises providing accommodation (e.g. a hotel or motel) is not considered a brothel if prostitution occurs there under an arrangement initiated elsewhere.
No person can offer, without an invitation, sex for a payment/reward on a street, road, footpath, road reserve, public place in Hamilton.
Only one sign for a brothel is allowed and it must:
Be smaller than 2m².
Not have flashing or neon lights.
Not contain explicit or offensive words.
Not contain any images, shapes or models considered sexually explicit/offensive.
Anyone who breaches the rules in the Bylaw could be fined up to $20,000 if convicted.
A copy of the existing Bylaw is attached to this proposal, scroll down the page to the heading Related to view.
Amend the existing Bylaw
This will mean the Council amends the current Bylaw after it considers feedback through the consultation process. This could include changing or removing one or more of the elements of the bylaw.
Tell us your thoughts on the Bylaw
Before making any final decisions, we’d like to have your input.
You can give us feedback from 1 July to 1 August 2019.
If you submitted during the first consultation period, your submission will be included automatically. You can add to or change your submission by resubmitting it using the link below.
Please note:
Please be aware when providing a submission/giving feedback/responding to a survey that all responses are part of the consultation process. This means that your name but not contact details may be reproduced and included in the Council's public documents such as the Council agendas and minutes. These documents are available on the Council's website at www.hamilton.govt.nz...
Next steps
Staff will collect and analyse all feedback at the close of the submission period.
The analysis of this feedback will be presented to the August 2019 meeting of the Regulatory and Hearings Committee. At this meeting, submitters who want to speak to their written submission will be able to do so.
The Council will then consider all the views and make a decision on the Bylaw in September 2019.

Kmart's list of 31 recalls

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

The $55 timber Occasional Chair is the latest casualty, although this is a withdrawal rather than a recall. We don't know the reason for its withdrawal, except Kmart says it is for "a potential quality issue". But what other products have been found wanting?

Wattie's Cans for Good

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

*What is Cans for Good?*
Cans for Good is an exciting national education and can collection campaign. Last year, Cans for Good was a huge success - more than 240 schools took part, collecting more than 70,000 cans to fill Salvation Army foodbanks.
The campaign brings together a charitable can collection drive and creative competition. It's supported by a set of teacher resources designed to engage children in fun, team-based learning experiences. The resources are available to download for free when you register online.

*Prizes*
As well as doing good in your community, having fun and learning, your school can also win some great prizes! Along with a competition for the best can creation, we have introduced a fun new campaign where your students can show or tell us how they think Wattie’s Spaghetti is made. We'll pick the most creative entry from each category: Kindergarten, Primary/Intermediate and Secondary School. The overall winner will receive a Wattie’s lunch shout for their school!

*Register today!*
Since the Watties partnership began in 1994, more than 1.4 million cans have been donated and this year through the support of New Zealand schools participating in Cans for Good we hope to achieve our target of 1.5 million cans!
Cans from each school will be given to the local Salvation Army or community foodbanks. These will help refill the shelves after the high winter demand period and enable schools around New Zealand to make a real difference to those in need in their community. To take part, register online by 31st July.
