Thanks, hope a venue is found in Auckland at some stage. Smyth Galleries in Herne Bay had an exhibition of collection of the posters a few years ago that was fantastic.
Is there any information on when/where the Selling the Dream exhibition is coming to Auckland?
Possibly, although I don't get that sense from the article, perhaps he could clarify
On the face of it the original request for data that triggered this would be covered by OIA.
Is this police "contract" a new thing?
Unclear from the Herald article exactly what he requested, suspect it was "personal information" held about him by Police. This wouldn't be covered by OIA, but the Privacy Act instead.
Presumably it wasn't a simple request for his own criminal record because he would know that already.
He’ll forgo the MP salary so he can’t be accused of double dipping, he’s already said he’s going to take a “leave of absence” for a month to campaign.
Incumbents never win by-elections in opposition held seats, why bother with the cost of a campaign?
Neither Labour or National wants to risk a by-election on Roskill in the run up to the election.
You watch, Goff will remain as MP for Roskill for several months after he becomes mayor until after April then both the major parties will agree to forgo the by-election.
Point Chev has gone :-)
And the “secret” thing has been dialled down:
If you re-read yesterdays article it is actually accurate.
Tomorrow, the Unitary Plan committee will meet behind closed doors to approve changes to the single house zone in north, south and east Auckland.
This follows a decision by the 11-member committee on November 10 to approve changes to the zone on the Auckland central isthmus and West Auckland.
So Pt Chev has not gone, just already been dealt with on Nov 10th
Ummm.... I think that's wrong, the proposal in 2013 was for most of Point Chev to be re-zoned Mixed Housing Urban but that was revised back in the formal submisson to mostly being left as Single Housing zone.
Sounds like behind closed doors they are reverting back to the 2013 proposal ?
Asset backing is a poor measure of Council debt.
Most council Assets have little market value and those that do have a commercial value are income generating to help lower the debt.
There is, for instance, one ratepayer for all the rates-attracting properties owned by Housing New Zealand in Auckland.
That is incorrect, "per ratepayer" figures refer to per "Rating Unit" which is basically 1 Certificate of Title so all Housing NZ would not count as 1 Ratepayer as you suggest.
