French teen Eloi Rolland, who has been missing in Auckland since March 2020, told his family he wanted to bring them to New Zealand.

More than two years after his disappearance, his parents Thierry and Catherine Rolland have finally arrived from France.

They do not know what happened to their son, and they’re desperate for answers.

“We don’t know what’s happened,” Catherine said. “We realise he is perhaps in another place.”

But the couple remain hopeful that Eloi is alive and well and said they would always be there for him.

Ben sleeps on a mouldy mattress on the floor. 1 in 10 Kiwi kids in our poorest communities don’t have their own bed, which puts them at risk from life-threatening illnesses like rheumatic fever.

During winter, a bed is a sanctuary from the cold – and diseases that come with it. A bed for Ben, and tamariki like him, would mean a warm and good night's sleep so they can stay healthy and concentrate at school.

With your support, we aim to provide 1,100 children with beds and warm bedding. Donate today to provide beds and bedding for Kiwi kids.

Greetings Hibiscus Coast residents. Is anyone interested in opposing or commenting on the Government and Council proposal to massively increase housing density on the Whangaraoa Peninsula?
My throughs are that it is clear that this peninsula does not pocess the neccessary infrastructure required to support intensification in terms of its roading, sewerage, stormwater management and its water supply. There is only a single road in and out of the peninsula that is at capacity, the current sewerage network extending along the peninsula to occean outfall at Army Bay is being further overloaded through current development along the peninsula and in addition I believe through housing developments at Millwater, Millbrook and Wainui. Likewise there are concerns that the water supply and management infrastructure along the peninsula is already under strain. Central Government and Auckland Council will not be able or prepared to spend the funds or indeed to find the capability to deliver that sort of infrastructure upgrade necessary to address the required roading, sewerage, stormwater and water supply infrastructure shortfall.
Hence intensive development on the peninsula, beyond that which is already occurring under the existing zoning, will place both the health and safety of residents at risk.

In conclusion the Whangaparaoa Peninsula clearly has long-term serious and significant infrastructure constraints as a qualifying matter. it appears irresponsible and impractible to permit or encourage medium density intensification along such a single access peninsula that is "closed ended" and in respect of essential infrastructure is already experiencing some effects of over-development. At the same time intensification posses a risk for the peninsula's positive ecological features, including destruction of existing wildlife and native bird sanctuaries (such as currently developing as result of conservation work being undertaken in Shakespear Park) and significantly increased pollution of our rivers, stream and occean beaches and Hauraki Gulf waters. It is my strong recommendation that the zoning of the Whangaparaoa Pensinsula continue as "Residential single house zone" as contained in the existing Auckland Unitary Plan

Councillors John Watson and Wayne Walker are holding a public meeting in the Whangaparaoa Hall at 9am on Saturday 21 May to discuss the housing intensification of Whanagaparaoa Pensinsula - see p 5 of Mondays Hibiscus Matters.

Hope we can all attend

Please let ohers know - this may be our opportunity to gather some momentum
