Poll: Do you support the new rules to build more homes?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.

Put away the lawnmower

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Have you thought of abandoning your lawn. Th Wellington City Council is encouraging people to think about the benefits of meadows.
The council team at Botanic Garden ki Paekākā are putting down their mowers and growing a meadow on Glenmore Lawn (pictured).
Not mowing means less maintenance but also has benefits for the environment. Not mowing saves on petrol and also promotes bio diversity. Bees, insects and caterpillars all love long grass.
What do you think about growing meadows and not cutting lawns?
