AUCKLAND RATES

Philidia from Dairy Flat - Redvale

We bought a property in Dairy Flat in 2013. The rates bill in 2014 was $1880 for a year. I today received the rates bill which is now $9985 for the year. A 500% increase in 8 years! Nothing has changed for this huge increase. We have been rezoned from rural to urban but we are still on tank water … View moreWe bought a property in Dairy Flat in 2013.

We have been rezoned from rural to urban but we are still on tank water and the roads are crappier than when we came! What is this council doing with our money. They obviously think there is a bottomless pit! Shame on you Phil Goff! No wonder there are so many angry people in this country.

As a semi retired driving instructor I used to own one of Auckland's well known driving schools. I am now offering people my driving lessons experience for free with all the tips and tricks on how to pass a driving test. Most parents do a great job of coaching their children but don't have the tools to get up to test standard. Tips like how to navigate roundabouts and do observation points, lane changing procedures, flush medians, merging, speed zones, how and when to do the MIB - men in black procedures etc and the list goes on.

Please Note : I am trying out this new strategy to save people heaps on driving lessons and also it's a neighbourly gesture so learners can pass their test at VTNZ and avoid critical errors.

With the 75+ population projected to double in 20 years’ time, it’s more important than ever to choose a retirement village that is equipped to support you when you’re fully independent as well as if you need care.

That’s why Ryman villages plan ahead by offering independent living in apartments and townhouses, assisted living in serviced apartments, resthome care and, in most villages, hospital and specialist dementia care.

We offer a higher ratio of care in our villages so that if your needs change, you have priority access to our care centres.
