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?

Water restrictions

Communications from Tauranga City Council

Flow in the streams that supply Tauranga’s drinking water continues to be at a record low. To ease pressure on the streams, water restrictions remain necessary to care for stream health and safeguard supply.

These images show flow over the weir in the Tautau and illustrate the problem well - between November 2020 and March 2021.

To accommodate the end of daylight savings, you can now water by handheld hose or watering can between 5am and 8am, and 5pm and 8pm.

A big thank you for your support in caring for our streams.
