Mobility Parking

Linda from Takanini

Hi Neighbours
I am concerned about the number of people who park in designated mobility parking spaces (marked with a wheelchair on the space and/or a sign). As a Carer for my mum I take her out and about every now and then not just appointments, however it becomes difficult when people park in these spaces without the tag in their car.
Recently, I took my mum to an appointment however we couldn't park in the alloted space because a young mum with a baby had parked there. When I approached her she said she was allowed to park there because she had a baby and abused me somewhat. There is a difference between a wheelchair and baby carriage.
Just a note to please be mindful of the people in our community who, for whatever reason, required these spaces kept clear for them.
We pay for the privilege of being able to use these spaces. Please be mindful of people who really need them.
Thank you

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
