750 new builds in Nelson

Pene from Stoke

Well, in this mornings news they have stated that they want to build 750 homes in Nelson. What a flippen joke. Not against new homes but w here is the infrastructure to accommodate an increase of population. They also said it might get a little more busy, or words to that affect. Now I know for sure that this tin pot town is down the tubes. We need a decent mayor in power and not one that is more concerned about image and smiling nicely at the camera. Oh Nelson is a lovely town, maybe once upon a time but give it a couple of years with this lot in power and it will be bedlam trying to get anywhere. Oh but we have a 40 mill library, well whippy. 😡

Maori Wards

Trevor from Richmond

I see that the Nelson City Council and Mayor have decided to establish a Maori Ward rather than choose democracy. The choice to establish a Maori Ward was soundly defeated in the recent democratic referendum intitiated by Nelson ratepayers. Of course the government has now put a stop to ratepayer's democratic rights in this regard. However, Nelson ratepayers need to know that their council's decision can be reversed.
Tasman District Council ratepayers need to know that the establishment of Maori Wards is an OPTION, and should let Mayor Tim King and councillors know their views. Local Government NZ has recommended to all councils (Nelson CIty Council couldn't have got the message!!!) that they survey their ratepayers to act on behalf of ALL ratepayers, and get a mandate for their decision on Maori Wards.

Widening of the footpath in Seymour Ave.

Mick from The Brook

In Seymour Avenue we get hundreds of cross country bikers travelling
along the street each week. Now the council have decided to widen the footpath to allow bikers access to a pedestrian footpath.
I believe this is very dangerous - accidents waiting to happen.
there is a difference between cyclists and bikers.
What do people on the tree side of the street think about this situation ?
