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

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

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

Instalment of an enclosed dog park in Upper Hutt

As a Upper Hutt resident I would like to get the council to put in an enclosed dog exercise area. Currently I have to travel to Plimmerton or Wellington to access one.   An enclosed dog exercise area would be a great space to socialise dogs and exercise them off leash safely.

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.

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

Retain STV (Single Transferrable Vote) as the voting system for Dunedin City Council Mayoral and Councillor Elections

First up...If you're going to share this on Facebook PLEASE sign it too - Thanks! A vocal minority, unhappy that their choice for mayor did not get elected, wish to push through a change back to an FPP (first past the post) system, in a thinly veiled attempt to get Dunedin's most divisive councillor in modern times elected as a minority mayor! A petition has been created by their supporters and it felt appropriate to 'balance the scales' Why FPP is undemocratic, and STV is a much better system:

Save our local firewood and landscape services provider from being shut down by Auckland Council!

Silverdale Landscape Services Limited has recently been issued an Abatement notice from Auckland Council ... so we only have a couple of months to save our business and our jobs!Unfortunately, even though the complaints made to Auckland Council from a couple of neighbours only relate to the firewood processing part of our business, an Abatement notice requires the entire business to cease as a whole.It's an unfortunate situation when the growth of Auckland City and urban developments threatens t

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
