A couple of days ago I put up the following post:

Afternoon folks, You may want to be conscious of your address details that you display on your activities albeit notice boards or buy & sell or any website forum. Yes there are those out there that may take advantage knowing this information of you. As opposed to showing your full residential address you may want to amend this to display only your street or better still just your suburb. Have a great day.



I queried Neighbourly about their thoughts on this. I put this subject out there just as a discussion.


Neighbourly response is and I can also see it from their side:
Neighbourly has been designed to help create stronger, safer communities, and a big part of this is knowing who lives next door or down the road from you. We do encourage members to share these details. These personal details are only seen by direct neighbours, the minimum info you can share is your name and address (you can choose to hide your street number), and this is Neighbourly's point of difference - and what makes the site work really well! What we ask you to share is little more than you'd find on a piece of mail in a letterbox. All members go through an address verification process to confirm they live where they say they do. Any member who has not completed this step has limited and temporary access to Neighbourly; they cannot see other neighbours' profiles, including address information, until they are verified. Further on this - only Neighbourly members in your suburb can see your address. I hope this helps, Marty. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us regarding members who are not aware their address is shown. This feature of Neighbourly is shared when signing up and you can view this in our privacy policy: www.neighbourly.co.nz...

I will leave this with you if you want to have a positive discussion or feedback :-)
As always have a great day.

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

To me, this Whaitua project is a journey where we can apply our experience and values, and develop a vision that enhances the mana of the whenua, the tangata whenua and the whole community.
We need you to be part of our journey on the Whaitua Project. This is a journey to improve the health and mauri of our waterways, we need to fix our waste and stormwater network. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.

Colour your world this February by taking part in the sixth Resene Hunger for Colour campaign! During the month of February you can swap a can of food for a 60-80ml testpot of Resene paint with all cans collected being donated to Salvation Army foodbanks.

Over the last five years, this campaign has seen Resene donate enough testpots to paint over 100,000 colourful square metres and generous Kiwis donate more than 190,000 cans.

We’d love to see the creations you make with your testpots – just message them to us here on Neighbourly for a chance to be featured!

As a result of our work in Willis Street, we have been working in Abel Smith, Cuba and Vivian Streets to perform maintenance work clearing out wastewater pipes.

The next stage of work in the area involves lifting a manhole and making some repairs, followed by flushing. In order to do this, we need to close a section of the Abel Smith and Cuba St intersections, highlighted on the map below.

This work will begin on Wednesday 5 February, and is expected to take 1 month to complete.

Access along Cuba St through this intersection is still available, however there will be no access into Cuba St from the Taranaki St entrance into Abel Smith St. Vehicles will be detoured down Wigan St onto Taranaki St and Right onto SH1 and Right onto Cuba.

The intersection will be on 24/7 traffic control signals. Please take care when travelling through the area, and follow the traffic signals, speed limits and detours.

Pedestrian access is still available throughout the work. Cyclists will have access past the site via footpath on the closure side, so will be able to dismount and make their way through site. Those that are using the "open" lanes will use the road as normal following the signals.

P.S I have sent an email to Neighbourly to address this issue or settings as Im sure it would be of concern at a national level.
