Are you struggling to find a house to buy? Tell us about it!
You're probably not alone.
With a population boom on the horizon, it appears soon it will be even more difficult: a council-commissioned assessment has found the Wellington region won't be able to keep up with housing demand with a massive shortfall predicted in the next eight years.
How much of a problem is it already?
NB please put NFP after your comment if you would not like it used in a story. Thank you!

Hello neighbors, my name is Maximus. I recently got a new headset from my parents that I don’t need as I have just got another new one.

The one I would like to sell is brand new and unopened, has a 2 year warranty and retails at 160-170 depending on retailer so buying it at 120 or near offer would be a bargain.

If you have any questions or queries please feel free to ask.

Thank you Maximus W

Once built, Omāroro Reservoir will make the city’s water supply much more resilient in case of a disaster or operational failure. Right now, we’re installing the large pipes that will connect the reservoir to the existing network.

This next stage involves closing Wallace Street, Mt Cook, to traffic for a few months. A diversion will be in place via Wright St, and Adelaide Road will be the main route into the city to and from the south.

Interested? You’re welcome to attend the community drop-in session on Sunday 17 November 11am – 2pm at Massey University Executive Suite, Gate A, Wallace St. See you there.
