Re: New By Laws protest

If they didn't have those laws all those people who do clean up after their dogs wouldn't do it. Some do it because it's the law, others because they don't want to be seen to be breaking the law. Same with leashes.

Re: Management Companay - Beverton

It's a good thing to leave the clippings. Visually not great for a short while but it breaks down and returns nitrogen to the soil to feed the newly growing grass. Without it you'd need chemicals or else have sh*tty looking patchy grass with lots of weeds.

Re: Planning Permission for additional 3 houses in Orchard V

One major concern I'd have about this development is that there is only provision for two car parking spaces for each house and with no overflow parking anywhere. This means when people have friends around a workman or woman needs to park their van they inevitably use Beaverstown road and block a l...

Looks nice though.

I do wonder what the cause is for the drop in water quality, but I guess we'll never find out.
It's probably all the sh*t in the water.

Re: New developments

It's encouraging that the developments have been halted for now. And well done Nicholas Brown.
The number of units is staggering considering the minor roads residents would have to use. You would swear the Beaverstown Road was a duel carriageway.

Re: New developments

To the schoolgirl walking out of Donabate on the Hearse Road, just past the garage about half an hour ago - I hope you made it home alive. I barely saw your white face at the last second in the dark and rain and it put the heart crossways in me. I had to jam on and swerve to save your life. You look...
