Nelson City Council - sea level rise

Cally from Atawhai

Nelson City Council has obviously decided that sea level rise is less of a problem than it was, as they have removed my house inundation notice from the LIM report that they issued last November. They were using a 2m rise for all their planning. However it has dropped to 1.5m.

I rather think this has more to do in wanting to push through a $44M state of the art, "better than Te Papa", Vanity, Eco Building Project on the river front, creating lots of waste and using "mitigation" to stop the sea coming in, rather than hoping the sea will stop rising!

Students, refugees and people who rely on a licence for their jobs are having to travel hundreds of kilometres to sit their restricted licence, or wait months in their home town. Do you know someone who has experienced the challenges of locking in their practical test? Since the story was published, driving instructor Kevin Bannan says more test times have been opened up in April.

House bricks

Sean from Toi Toi - Washington Valley

I need four house bricks to repair a hole in the wall of my house. They are proving hard to find... 230x75mm or close. Colour is not an issue - not compared to the hole anyway ;-)
