Every year, around 130,000 Kiwis fall victim to identity theft, with passport details the most commonly stolen information.

We’re wondering what Wellingtonians think about the use of biometric identifiers to unlock devices. Not just physical markers such as fingerprints and facial recognition, but also behavioural characteristics such as finger movements and gestures.

One way to take part is by joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Support group on your street.

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!

Hi, I'm Sean Rush and I am the Portfolio lead for Wellington's '3 waters' and represent the Wellington City Council on the Whaitua Committee.

We have considerable challenges to maintain our current network and be prepared for growth. Maintaining a balance between delivering affordable, clean and sufficient water must be balanced with ensuring our take does not adversely affect the eco-systems of the relevant waterways or result in environmentally harmful discharges.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.
