A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out?

Waiatarua Reserve

Waiatarua from Meadowbank

Instead the Orakei Local Board is moving forward with costly and time consuming consultation to amend the the off-leash by-law.

Any vet will tell you socialisation of dogs is a key to the overall wellness and health of dogs. Improperly socialized dogs risk their own health, pose an injury risk to others.

This petition has been started by the Waiatarua Dog Walkers, a community group formed to protect the current 'off leash' amenity in the Waiatarua Reserve. We are opposed to any change to current by-law resulting in any loss of off-leash amenity enjoyed and valued by so many.

Please sign the petition to protect off-leash dog parks. chng.it...

The suspensions came as bus drivers stopped accepting passenger fares, in a bid for better pay work hours. On Thursday, First Union and Tramways withdrew industrial action after Auckland Council got involved with concerns of the suspension's impact on the city's public transport. However, union members and NZ Bus are yet to come to an agreement.
