Building 101: So you want to build a sleep out...

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

When I heard there would be changes to the consent rules around building sleep outs, I was excited. I've always wanted a tea house in my back yard... a garden room where I can do a bit of potting, maybe read a book, or just cool off in the shade.
Turns out it's not quite as simple as a … View more

Turns out it's not quite as simple as a trip to the hardware store to burn a hole in your credit card. If you're thinking of putting something up on your property, check in here first:

Disappointing to read of a 90% cut to our Library funding. This is an excellent resource not only for the wider community but also for our schools. To be able to access latest material, receive professional support for our learners has been very important. Too many of the families do not have extensive reading material and this has been excellent at supporting their learning. Having classes go to the library and to be taken through the process and introduced to exciting and different material has been so important for our readers. Perhaps the Council should consider less effective and supportive ventures they are planning rather than an essential resource, which supports the needs of all in this catchment area. Where was the public consultation, the community voice around cutting 90% from a service needed by many and especially in this time? These rates are more than I paid in Auckland and I expect for that money this essential service to be able to be maintained for all in the community. Hopefully the community voice will be heard now not wait for the 2021 budget- with no guarantees.

Hi guys.
I'm on the hunt for local businesses in our community that would allow a donation box to sit on the counter for 2 weeks to raise money for a member of our community.

If you didnt know, we have a beautiful 27 year old woman who has been diagnosed with cancer. Sadly her treatment isnt government funded and is very costly, without this treatment she will die. Imagine the news at 27 that you wont be able to see you're nephew grow up or be able to have a family of you're own. I will be trying to make contact with as many businesses as possible this week but if you manage or own a business that would be able to help out by allowing me to do this could you please send me a message or comment below 😊
We also have a fun run being set up in Paeroa for August 2nd in efforts to raise more much needed money. I have posted the give a little incase you were interested in donating yourself and reading about this young woman or sharing her story. Thank you very much ❤

Would you dare?

It's a cross between a fighter jet and torpedo - that looks like a shark - and this Queenstown ride has been discounted to encourage more Kiwis to travel.
