Locals fuming over construction waste dumping in Auckland's Hobsonville

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Nor-west News

Hi neighbours

Construction waste dumping in Hobsonville is resulting in streets and parks littered with pieces of concrete and polystyrene.

Frustrated locals have had enough, and are banded together to organise a clean-up day on Saturday.

Upper Harbour Local Board is spending over $50,000 to employ a staff member to advise builders to tidy up their waste, and claim there's been some improvement.

Are you happy about the loss of 8,000 planted native seedlings?

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora Neighbours, A contested decision by politicians on the Upper Harbour Local Board to mow down 8,000 native plants and young trees, could bring a hefty bill. Council staff reject that there was a mistake in the planting, and now there could be a big bill. What do you think ?
