Struggling to pay your Watercare bill

The Team from Water Utility Consumer Assistance Trust

The Water Utility Consumer Assistance Trust provides financial support to residential customers of Watercare Services Ltd who are struggling to manage their water and/or wastewater costs. It is a charitable trust that receives funding from Watercare. The Trust can assist home owners and tenants (as long as there is a debt to Watercare and not the property manager or landlord).

The Trust is able to assist by setting up a payment plan to cover ongoing monthly Watercare invoices (the payments are made direct to Watercare) and the Trust is able to write off some, or all of the debt. The Trust also provides information on ways to save water, how to carry out a leak test, and other water saving incentives.

We have a website where an application form can be downloaded (www.waterassistance.org.nz) , and also have a Facebook page (Water Utility Consumer Assistance Trust). An application form can be emailed or posted (email: info@waterassistance.org.nz or send message via Facebook)

Vector need to replace a transformer located inside NSP (263 Parnell Rd), as it was installed many years ago. So between the 24th June 2024 and 13th July 2024 they will be replacing new high voltage network equipment at 263 Parnell Road.

During the work period, please expect to see:
• Excavation work on the footpath just outside 263 Parnell Road, which will create noise from time to time and will block a section of pedestrian access.
• A temporary transformer will be placed in the loading zone outside 269 Parnell Rd to facilitate ongoing power to affected properties.
• Parking restrictions and traffic flow - there will be limited parking directly around the worksite to allow their trucks and vehicles access to the worksite. During daytime hours, there will also be a loss of parking on the opposite side of the street in order to facilitate continued two way traffic up and down Parnell Rd. They do apologise that customers may need to be directed to parking further down the street or inside the parking at St John the Baptist.
• Work hours – most of the work will happen between 9am and 4pm, with some work taking place at night (9pm to 6am). The night works are not anticipated to create noise. There will also be two planned outages and affected properties have been notified.

Non Solo Pizza have to unfortunately close over this period, and will probably remain closed until the end of July as they will use the closure to complete some internal renovations. But most other businesses are trading as usual. Gerome will be trading as normal, 7 days a week, Parnell Gallery will be closed the first week of July, but otherwise trading as normal, and look out for the new coffee kiosk opening at 269 Parnell Rd from 8th July.
