Will you make the most of changes to DIY rules?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.

Orange clivia plants - FREE

Bridget from Grey Lynn

Hi Neighbours,
We have about 30 orange clivia plants that we've just pulled out of the garden and are available for pick-up outside 37 Schofield Street, Grey Lynn. Small and medium plants which if you settle into your garden now will probably reward you with lovely blooms come late winter/spring. Great for mass planting, and part-shade/ shade areas, flowers good for picking. Enjoy :-)

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
