Be warned. The ultra-strict Rugby World Cup rules take effect in Wellington this weekend.
One of the most surprising bans – and one of the meanest – is a restriction on where buskers can perform. The city council always requires them to get a licence. (It’s free, after you’ve filled in a form and studied the guidelines.) But for the Rugby World Cup, with or without a licence, no busking will be allowed within 500 metres of the Westpac Regional Stadium.
As summer approaches, water and its vitality, is of great concern to your local government representatives. It’s not just the normal summer water shortage that worries us, but all the issues around supply, quality, necessity for life, disposal, pollution and safe delivery to and from your properties, and of course the cost of doing so.
