Central Nelson bike stand project at the halfway mark

Tim Newman Reporter from The Nelson Mail

The first of the covered bike stands, which can accommodate for 60 bicycles each, was set up in Montgomery Square in December. The second, located outside Civic House on Trafalgar St, is expected to be ready by mid-March.

What are your thoughts on the bike stand project? Are they an encouragement to get on your bike more or are they taking up valuable car parking space?

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Council will meet on Thursday to discuss the proposal, along with four other renovation and rebuild possibilities.

What are your thoughts on the proposal? What would you like to see happen?
