I was hoping to get in contact with someone from the Māori, Pasifika and Indian community who have either struggled to find a rental or buy a home.
The housing crisis has affected all three groups particularly badly, so if there's anyone who comes from these groups who is willing to talk please drop me a message: firstname.lastname@example.org
Aucklanders are being called to have their say about the new layout of the Arthur Grey low traffic area in Onehunga.
The people-friendly area will be trialled for the next two weeks.
It is designed to allow access to cars but stop them from using the location as a short-cut.
Trials have been taking place around Arthur St and Grey St in Onehunga, and Eastview Rd in Glen Innes as part of the national Innovating Streets for People pilot fund.
Local Board chair Chris Makoare said it was critical to get enough feedback to make the best decisions for communities.
He has urged members of the public to be patient and to complete the online survey on the stage 1 layout.
The board wants to know what residents think about the area being trialled, about road safety, traffic speeds and volumes.
