New Zealand homes aren’t good enough. All too often, they’re cold, draughty, expensive to heat and make us, our friends and our whānau sick.

Ok I can forsee more expenditure coming for the new District council. These new blue bins are one third smaller than the red bins. As I am aware we need to do alot more to reduce waste and recycle more. Why did the council not consider placing strategically bottlebanks every 5 -10 streets, and arrange to have them emptied every 2-3 weeks. I live in an area where i know that some homes use two red bins to put out their empty beer and wine bottles along with the plastic bottles containers and jars. I have a feeling that there will be alot of people going into the council in a months time saying their blue bins have developed legs and walked of with friendly people to live at their addresses in order to get new bins. I am sooo looking forward to how the district council explain this one.
Is everyone aware that there is a suggestion at Whangarei District Council that the BACH/Mokaba etc section of the award-winning Town Basin development be demolished for parking for tourist buses?
a) How many tourist buses are they expecting (in excess of those ones that stop at the moment) on how many days in each year?
b) Why can't they use either the area currently leased to Wilson Parking or the old Toyota yard?
c) Aren't all the businesses in that part of the complex ones that the tourist will want to visit?
