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

The Mayor and several councillors have pushed through policies  with little or no public consultation,the latest being the change of speed to 10kmh in the CBD .This was done by the Mayor using the Covid 19 argument it will be better for the public and reduce the risk of infection . This happened within a matter of days and the signs were already printed before the vote at council was done. This was also do

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

Mangere Bridge Carpark entrance closure.

Do you agree that closure of the main entrance to the Mangere Bridge shops carpark has not been well considered nor widely consulted on and will be detrimental to local small businesses and traffic movement including delivery vehicles in the area and place pedestrians in increased conflict with traffic from the new smaller proposed entrance. If you are in agreement please sign this petition.

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.

Name the NorthConnex Tunnel after Jim Adams.

This petition is to show support for the naming of the NorthConnex Tunnel after Jim Adams who lost his life during the construction of the tunnel on May 23rd 2017. To name this tunnel after a well respected man is a small token of appreciation for both the memory of Jim and his family.

Safer streets with safer lighting

The above picture is Allen Bell Bridge at 6.15am. One of many bridges with insufficient lighting & unsafe footpaths due to lack of lighting which is hazardous. We as a community should be able to walk our streets safely, day and night without fear! Township streets should not be restricted because of the lack of street lighting. Recently I was approached and stalked by a person in a dark area which left me shaken and afraid. I’ve reported the incident to the police and have brought this upon

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

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

Bring Mock Exams and Study Leave Back

 The decision to cancel mock examinations and study leave at Westlake Girls High School was one made without the input of the student body- the people that this decision effects the most. The value of practice examinations and study leave is monumentally more than that of only two more weeks of teaching time. This decision should be altered if the student body wishes it so. In this current climate, where there is so much uncertainty having our practice examinations is vital. Considering that man
