Save our Centre! Government funding essential to keep classes running for disabled children in Taranaki.

Conductive Education Taranaki has provided highly valued specialised sessions for kids with disablilites since 2017 without Ministry of Health funding.   Conductive Education has been part of New Zealand for over 25 years, with existing providers receiving Government funding. Centres in Auckland, Waikato, Wellington and Christchurch all hold Child Development Services contracts to support their service delivery.  We have to raise it all ourselves through exposure, events and activities!

Preserve the Eskdale Park in the Esk Valley Napier

Petition summary: The HB Mountain Bike Club and the Hastings District Council have put forth a proposal to develop the Eskdale Park into a mountain bike hub with further future plans of development. This will take the direction of the Eskdale Park away from being the beautiful natural green country park it is currently. The Eskdale Park is the only country park in the Esk Valley area. It deserves to be protected and set up as a natural reserve and green space for families to enjoy both now and i

TE WIWI NĀTI HAPŪ CLUSTER PETITION: THE ROAD

 Our road from and between the Kaiinanga Hill to the end of the Tikapa and Awanui Roads is often unsafe and inaccessible, especially in the wet months.   Whānau still live in that valley, and people travel in and out daily for work, for school, or to visit other whānau. We are often not able to attend our marae hui. The Ambulance and Fire Services often can't attend emergencies there.   We are asking that the Gisborne District Council repair the road.  No more short-term patch-ups.   We need our

Keep our kiwi right to sustainably harvest wild food

Below is one example of a politically correct and illogical regulation that is going to prevent average kiwis from eating from the wild.  Stop this encroachment on our right to responsibly feed ourselves; Because Sea Shepherd have launched a legal challenge in the USA to ban NZ fish exports to the USA (worth about NZ$200 million), the Government is introducing a set net ban out to 4 nautical miles in the Golden Bay and Tasman Bay regions to prove it is protecting dolphins when; 1. There are no M

State highway 35 users against the speed restrictions that come into force on the 8th September 2020.

We are opposed to the permanent speed restrictions, from Pouawa to Okitu (100km/hr down to 80km/h), and the seasonal speed limit being reduced to 60km/hr. We want the speed limit left at the current level, instead other safety measures should be looked at. We believe that the speed reductions will further isolate the East Coast communitys, and only add to fatigue for all road users.

Waikato Cherry Tree Festival Sep 2020

Target Waikato District Council Preamble We have trespassers to thank for the Waikato Cherry Tree Festival. The desperateness of people to get amongst the cherry blossoms made us want to share this beautiful place with the local community and people. Anne and I (Paul) thought it would be great idea to arrange various multicultural performances and get the community together to celebrate spring. The first year was 2017 and we had a great response from the community. We sold our allowed maximum of

New Plymouth Girls' High School Vape Policy

Dear Stella Bond (Acting Principal), Currently, at New Plymouth Girls' High School there is no policy against students vaping on school grounds. This is an issue because vaping with high levels of nicotine has been proven to negatively affect the human body and can lead to addiction. Young people are at risk of being peer pressured by others to participate in this and as their brains are not yet fully developed they are unlikely to consider the longterm effects of vaping.
