Dear neighbours, did you know that EcoFest West kicks off on Saturday 20 March? There are more than 140 events celebrating our environment in West Auckland next month, and many of them are free or low-cost and whānau friendly.

Are there any eco skills you’d like to pick up? You could learn about foraging, bike maintenance, upcycling or more, or just enjoy nature with a guided walk or bike ride.

Visit www.ecofest.org.nz for more details. Thanks to the Henderson-Massey, Waitākere Ranges and Whau local boards for supporting the festival.

See you there!

Why is the ratepayer paying for housing intensification with a proposed 5% rates increase?

Jay from New Lynn

We have 260 units going in at Nola’s Orchard, Glen Eden with no parking, no laundry facilities, nowhere for kids to play and zero chance for public input due to fast track legislation. We have a huge development of multi storey blocks going in on Croydon Road, New Lynn where there used to be 2 … View moreWe have 260 units going in at Nola’s Orchard, Glen Eden with no parking, no laundry facilities, nowhere for kids to play and zero chance for public input due to fast track legislation. We have a huge development of multi storey blocks going in on Croydon Road, New Lynn where there used to be 2 houses; plus yet another house being replaced by 8 units in my neighbourhood with a lot more intensification to come. Developer contributions go nowhere near paying for all the new infrastructure needed. Ratepayers are forced to pay for the rest while developers and investors make huge profits. Auckland Council is broke, in huge debt and taking on a lot more. This totally unsustainable, suburb destroying intensification with its huge loss of urban tree cover needs to become an election issue.
