Northland Regional Council

Joe & Gaylene from Hikurangi Coastal

Calling all Northlanders to complete the current survey being organised by the NRC as to how they are doing as a council: (www.nrc.govt.nz...). I don't know about others but I am heartily sick of the exorbitant amount we have to pay them (ever increasing) when they perform on a shallow, advice-based, role in the environment matters they are supposed to be focussing on and rather dream up employment and business promotion schemes (using our money), scholarships, etc. that they were never mandated to do. Please all have your say, as they have been getting away with this for too long.

Do you think moving Ports of Auckland north will be practical?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A report by the National Road Carriers Association has found moving Ports of Auckland north to Northport would be impractical, prohibitively expensive and increase truck trips between Northland and Auckland. But MP Shane Jones says this is just "snobbery" by Aucklanders against Northland, and most of the transportation will be done by rail. What do you think?
