What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Canterbury regional council rates could jump more than 24 per cent

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The average Christchurch ratepayer could be an extra $250 a year out of pocket if steep regional council rate hikes thought to be one among the highest in the country are brought in.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) is proposing increasing rates by either 24.5 per cent or 18 per cent, to cover the fallout of the Government’s new freshwater regulations.

This would be on top of district council rate rises, such as Christchurch City Council’s proposed five per cent increase, leaving many concerned about the combined toll of the cost to ratepayers. Read more here.
