Small Sections a Help to Auckland?

Housing shortage and urban sprawl solution? Tainui Tce in Mount Cook, Wellington, includes 4 houses on 106 square metre sections! I know because I sold one once. One of them has a 90 m2, 2 story house on it. Everyone is happy, & have been for 140 years. So why the 250 to 400 m2 requirements these days? It’ s either small freehold sections, or planners will need to start looking at trailer parks – like other developed countries have! resized_1137541737_2d42e36932df4f4a8003ce2edc285c1a tommap-aerial-image-2700466467925372333

Wellington Knows How to Do It

Tim buys a drycleaners in upper Cuba street, makes it into a relaxed  bar  and music venue, some would say hip. And never removes the old signage. Very very cool marketing statement. WPicture 002onderful Wellington.

Just Needs Alice and a Mad Hatter

I was out delivering fliers in Northland, Wellington. Came on this lovely scene. Toadstools, empty chair, big floppy eared rabbit 150420132018 in the cage at back of the daised lawn…the stuff tales are made from.

Wellington “Traffic Calming Device”

In Owhiro Bay, this carefully placed safety rockIMG_1331 helped an errant motorist stop, and not go further off the coastal road. And maybe helped teach them to go a bit slower. Seen on caravan while down there on Wellingtons wild South Coast
