"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.

DO YOU NEED A BUILDING CONSENT FOR YOUR INTERNAL ALTERATIONS?

Toni from Toni Thomas Architectural Design

Are you planning to:

Remove load bearing walls?
Add a bathroom or toilet?

Are you planning to:

Remove load bearing walls?
Add a bathroom or toilet?
Move walls and rooms inside your home?

Do you know that alterations within the existing footprint of your home can usually be done as a Building Consent Exemption?

What does this mean for your project?

It means far less cost for you, you can save thousands of dollars on council fees;
It means shorter processing times;
And it means an internal building project is far more affordable.

I specialise in drawing up and applying for Building Consent Exemptions and I offer a fast, friendly, and professional service. If you would like to know more please don't hesitate to get in touch. I am happy to discuss and advise on any size project.
