Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?

Global Day of Protest - 25 January

Stathia from Island Bay

Hello neighbours in Island Bay and nearby neighbourhoods, We love our neighbourhoods. Above all, we want to keep them safe for ourselves and our loved ones. We pull together to safeguard against any threats to our safety. The 'Neighbourly' pages help us to do this, which is great. Most unwelcome threats are visible and obvious, but right now a looming threat to our health and well-being is unseen and slipping under the radar. I'm referring to the roll-out of 5G. The higher frequency radiation planned for 5G has not been well-researched for health effects on humans, wildlife and the environment. Our Ministry of Misinformation (aka Ministry of Health) is saying that existing research can be applied to 5G but this is a hugely unscientific assumption, given that the characteristics of the higher-frequency 5G radiation are markedly different from existing 3G, 4G and wi-fi.....and many independent studies have found adverse health effects from these frequencies too. Increasing numbers of New Zealanders are becoming aware of the 5G issue and demanding a Moratorium on the roll-out until thorough, independent research on health effects has been carried out. Saturday January 25, (tomorrow) is the National Day of Protest throughout NZ. This has been organised in support of the Global Day of Protest in more than 40 countries around the world.
The attached gives details of the event planned for Wellington. Your support would be greatly appreciated. See you at Civic Centre at 12:30pm

MOA POINT SLUDGE UPDATE

The Team from Wellington Water

The trucking operations that have been operating this week, continue to prevent sludge from being discharged into the Cook Strait. The alternative operation means trucks on 24 hour rotation collect the wastewater treatment byproduct at the Moa Point Treatment Plant, taking it to the landfill at Carey’s Gully.

The operation was today refined by reducing the amount of trucks on the road and splitting them into two shifts of 6-7 trucks each. These trucks are continuing to keep up with demand, and are operating efficiently.

The fault in the pipeline was located yesterday, and we are continuing to plan a repair with a temporary bypass, as well as a long term fix. The location appears to be about 200m inside the tunnel under Mt Albert.

We are working with the local community at Moa Point, and are holding a community meeting on Sunday to update them on the project and address any concerns residents may have.

We will provide further update on Monday 27 January.
