$140m Queenstown road project approved by Government after 30 years of planning

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

The Government has spent 67 days granting fast-track approval for a Queenstown town centre bypass that local bureaucrats have debated for decades.

It was expected stage one of construction would begin on July 1, although there was still design work to complete and land acquisitions to finalise.

The Government has spent 67 days granting fast-track approval for a Queenstown town centre bypass that local bureaucrats have debated for decades.

It was expected stage one of construction would begin on July 1, although there was still design work to complete and land acquisitions to finalise.

Stage one involved a diversion off Frankton Rd, via Melbourne and Henry streets to Shotover St.

Funding had not yet been secured for the second stage and third stages, which involved enabling the bypass to Man St, then to the Fernhill roundabout and the road to Glenorchy.

Queenstown Lakes District mayor Jim Boult had previously said it would be “crazy” not to proceed with stage two, which would require the destruction of the town’s Memorial Centre and council buildings.

How has being close to someone who has trained and practises psychotherapy affected you?

Very little research has been conducted into the experiences of people close to psychotherapists and I believe this is an important area of inquiry.

I would like to meet and interview people about their experiences with the intention of understanding how being close to a person who has trained and practises psychotherapy impacts the lives of significant others.

I am looking for people who meet the following criteria:
• Partners, children, parents, or siblings of someone practising psychotherapy
• Have lived with the person practising psychotherapy for a period of more than five years during and/or after their training.
• Are over the age of 18 years

Confidentiality all information shared will be treated with absolute confidentiality. All efforts will be made to ensure participants remain unidentifiable in the final report and your privacy respected at all times.

If you agree to participate, then I would interview you for approximately one hour and no more than ninety minutes.

A small koha will be offered in appreciation of participation.

If you think you would like to participate or have any further questions, please contact Jane Tuson tusonj@icloud.com or 021 716622. I can send a full participation information sheet to you.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
