Stop the Greytown Trust Lands Trust from holding the Greytown Community to Ransom

The GTLT was established in 1871 with unsold sections from the early development of Greytown. Its purpose, set out in a parliamentary act, is to primarily assist education, but including libraries, physical welfare, other cultural purposes, and maintaining and promoting in the district the general well-being of the public. 150 years ago there was a real need for education support but now much of this is provided by central government.  The GTLT directors are holding our community to ransom by th

CAP SOUTH WAIRARAPA DISTRICT RATE RISES TO 2% FOR THREE YEARS

South Wairarapa District Council (SWDC) consultation documents create an impression that the SWDC is raising rates by only 2%. That is not the case. The Council plans to increase its annual operating expenditure by 18% for next year – see page 24 of Council’s supporting information for consultation. There is smoke and mirrors around the figures but it is clear that rates will rise over the longer term from Council’s proposals this year by at least 13%, and likely more especially if the Greytown

Re-open the sale yards

COVID-19 shut down our sale yards but now we desperately need to have these re-opened, particularly in areas like Hawke's Bay where severe drought is having a major impact. Hawke's Bay farmers are currently facing what may be the worst drought in history, and the situation is compounded by the loss of the sale yards - an avenue of selling that the majority of farmers know well and have ultilised in the past. Other regions are also under significant feed pressure and would benefit from sale yards

Localised Hunting

Under New Covid-19 level 3 guidelines you are allowed to travel within your region for essential purpose, go for day walks, surfing, bike riding and fishing, all of which you need to be experienced. I write on request that localised hunting is reconsidered for experienced hunters. This is how we exercise our working dogs, exercise ourselves, keep our freezers full for our families, bonding time with our family bubble and general well being. In these hard economic times sourcing our own meat is e

Partial refund to international and domestic students studying in Aotearoa

International students have been promised an unforgettable experience and limitless opportunities in New Zealand Universities. We have been paying 3-4 times more than domestic students to get the full New Zealand educational experience. Due to COVID-19 Universities have decided to put the rest of the term online. Which lacks on experience and the wide range of opportunities that we have been promised e.g. Lab practicses, Internships, many more.. A partial refund of the thousands of NZD we have p

Allow Essential Maintenance of Golf Courses During Lockdown Period

MBIE have determined that golf course turf maintenance is not an essential service during the Covid-19 lockdown period. If critical parts of any golf course (namely putting greens) do not receive basic maintenance over the shutdown period, the task of restoring the greens to required standards/conditions may not be achievable or affordable for many golf clubs. The long term financial impacts for these clubs, and consequently for the many NZ’ers who enjoy the game, will be far reaching.   Please

Put a hold on the roll out 5G

I am expressing my concerns about the detrimental affect non ionizing radiation could have on our children who are our potential future leader of our country New Zealand. There has been no sufficient scientific study on the 5G platform to indicate that 5G is safe for our children. I believe parliament has not taken the appropriate measures to ensure the health and safety of our children and the NZ public. I simply ask that parliament holds on the roll out of 5G until sufficient scientific eviden
