Housesitter extraordinaire available !

Cathie from Kensington

My friend has a home in Auckland but has been travelling overseas for several months and has tenants currently until at least February and therefore wishes to offer her services as a house sitter. Dates beyond February would also be negotiable. She has plenty experience and has excellent references having done this many times before. She has lived, owned and operated a business in Northland in the past and is very keen to house sit in Whangarei. Having known my friend for 40+ years I can personally assure you that your home would receive the best of care and you could enjoy your travels with no concerns for your property. Please contact Dianne 0211017877. She will be delighted to hear from you !

Proposed speed limit changes

Online Content Publisher from Whangarei District Council

We are seeking community feedback on proposals to set new speed limits in the Marsden Point, Waipu and Vinegar Hill areas.

The speed limit review is the first part of a rolling review that Council will undertake over the next two years as part of the national Safer Journey's programme.

Marsden Point, Waipu and Vinegar Hill Road are the first areas to be reviewed and all contain roads where the current speed limit does not reflect the road environment, creating higher risk for all road users. The increased risk is reflected in the crash statistics for these roads.

Northland Transportation Alliance Strategy and Planning Manager, Jeff Devine says speed was a significant factor in 30% of the 733 fatal and serious injury crashes in Northland between 2014 and 2018 and there is a strong community desire to address the issue.

Road Safety and Traffic Engineer, Nick Marshall said that in most cases, a lower speed limit will reduce the number and severity of crashes but will only have a small impact on overall journey times as most people’s average speed on these roads is much lower than the posted speed limit.

Further information on the current speed limit review, including a Statement of Proposal and how to make a submission can be found on Council’s website at www.wdc.govt.nz... or by emailing Council at mailroom@wdc.govt.nz

Submissions must be received by Council before 5:00pm, Monday 9 December.
