KCDC Planning

Ewen from Waikanae

It is appreciated most people find KCDC to be unresponsive to ratepayers needs and therefore ignore the elections process and making submissions as a waste of time.

Please consider going to the KCDC website and making a submission to their planning document. It isn't hard to do but does take a bit of time.

KCDC are using the document to help support their proposed 8.5% rates increase and to get the mandate to move into new areas such as investing in social housing and establishing a company outside of their current business. They also give the opportunity to give feedback on things like the Gateway project.

If enough people provide feedback then hopefully KCDC might take notice?

Dolly the collie has $25,000 surgery as owner keeps best mate mobile

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It has been a rough two years for Dolly the collie. The problems with Dolly’s limbs began when she was 10, resulting in the surgery on three of her four lower limbs. Her fourth limb may require surgery in the future.
Over the last two years owner Alla Baider has spent $25,000 trying to keep her beloved pet mobile.
Dolly has an empathy with people, that really shone through the Covid lockdown, she said.
“On top of her good looks and winning smile, Dolly has a supernatural sense for whenever someone is feeling down or in pain. It’s impossible to still be upset after receiving a warm hug from her.”
