SeaLink continued services to Port Fitzroy, Great Barrier Island

The residents of Port Fitzroy and the surrounding areas of north Great Barrier Island have been formally informed by the North Barrier Residents and Ratepayers Association that after Easter 2020 SeaLink will no longer bring freight or passengers to the Port Fitzroy Wharf.

Crush the Quarry Featherston - Stop the Rock Crushing Onsite!

The quarry approved for Featherston and already started is just 3.8km away from our main street on Underhill Road.  When we factor in wind, the quarry dust (and potentially damaging silica) has the ability to reach the township.  The quarry also has devastating environmental aspects.  The Quarry is approved (for now), so as a community we have the chance to stop the crushing on-site and ugly stock piling.   Keep your kids breathing clean air.  Be able to hang out your laundry and open the window

Let butchers open during the lockdown

Many people including myself buy their meat at independent butchers rather than the supermarket. Now the butchers have been told they have to close as they are 'non-essential'.  We, the signers of this petition, disagree. It is unfair and makes no sense.

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
