Hi Auckland,

What should Auckland Council prioritise this year?

Auckland Council plans to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and is set to be one of the biggest challenges that is facing council leaders in 2021.

The Auckland Climate Plan is set to be released to the public for consultation in February, with Councillors already opting for the smaller of the two climate budget proposals.

Water management, both water access and waste water systems are also set to come under review, with Watercare scaling back many projects, which may end up postponing completion by a number of years.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Conversations section of your local paper.

Thanks to the brave and quick actions of these members of the public (pictured centre and centre right) – an offender who was trying to make a getaway after stealing money from a Henderson dairy was stopped and swiftly arrested. 👏

Earlier this month, one of the owners of the store was working behind the counter when a man entered the store and demanded money.

He walked behind the counter to the cash register and took a large sum of money, but the owner very quickly managed to activate the anti-theft smoke canon and the offender fled the shop.

Seeing what happened, the members of the public chased the offender and caught him, holding him until Police arrived soon afterwards.

He was then arrested and taken into custody.

A 40-year-old man has been charged with theft and was due to appear in the Waitakere District Court last week.

The money taken was returned to the dairy owners (pictured on the left), who were very grateful to those who stepped in to help.

A great result and example of people going above and beyond to look out for people in their local community.
