Landscaping disappointment - help!

Karolyn from Khandallah

I have to say, I am struggling to find good people to do landscaping work. I had commissioned Red Rocks landscaping to move my clothes line. They never completed the work and left me with a big mess. Is there any companies that would like to do this work for me? Attached is a photo of the mess left and the space I would like to clothes line to go.

Wellington bus drivers to strike on Friday

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you support Wellington bus driver striking?
Wellington bus drivers will strike for 24 hours on Friday, shutting down many key services in the city.
Tramways Union secretary Kevin O’Sullivan said members had ‘just had it’.
Tramways and Public Passenger Transport Employee’s Union’s Wellington Branch gave notice of a total strike at 3am Thursday morning. The strike will start at 4am on Friday, and end at 4am on Saturday.
The ‘surprise’ strike was announced Thursday morning after drivers voted 204-2 in favour of taking industrial action at a meeting on April 14.

Do you back a ban on parking in footpaths?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Parking on footpaths could soon become an offence in Wellington, following public complaints about increased risks to pedestrians and a lack of space for emergency vehicles.
The change is being proposed as part of Wellington City Council’s new parking policy, introduced in August, which aims to reduce reliance on private vehicles, manage increasing parking demands and make it easier to travel around the city.
The proposed new law would instigate a city-wide ban on parking on, or partially on, footpaths across the city, with infringement notices to be issued at the discretion of parking wardens.
It would overturn a 2005 council decision which permitted footpath parking anywhere in Wellington apart from the central city and suburban centres, provided at least one metre of footpath space was left for footpath users.
