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?

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Charlotte

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"I was a stray mum with kittens before coming to the SPCA.
Here's what my foster mum has to say about me:

Charlotte is a sweet wee girl, gentle and friendly with kittenish spirit coming through from time to time. She was initially nervous in her new environment, but patience and gentle encouragement has seen her become playful and sociable.

She likes being patted but isn't too fussed on being picked up and held (although this is improving) and isn't a lap cat at the moment. She spends some of her time in other rooms around the house but mostly likes company and comes when called.

She is an early riser and when she wants something can be quite vocal. She loves playing with small toys and moving things and gets quite absorbed watching action programmes on tv. A warning though, she loves electrical cables. She is a well adapted and house trained cat, and surprisingly, given her underlying nervousness, isn't scared of the vacuum cleaner, however I don't think she will like a rowdy household."
