What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

What do you think of the changing laws around Māori wards?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangārei District Council will www.stuff.co.nz...
|have to advertise a binding poll| on its proposed Māori wards, and then cancel it two days later, after a petition demanding the poll clashes with a new law doing away with the polls. The petition-triggered polls consistently overturn proposals for Māori wards, and are considered fundamentally unfair, as no other wards or representation changes can be cancelled in this way. What do you think?
