Urban Tauranga unaffected by permit suspension

Urban areas of Tauranga remain unaffected by a suspension on open air fire permits being issued in the Western Bay of Plenty.

Rural areas of Tauranga City are affected.

An urban open air fire suspension would only be put in place following a recommendation from the New Zealand Fire Service.

January's hot, dry weather conditions have forced a suspension on all open air fire permits in the Western Bay.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
