Discussion on how the council can help improve the amount of Auck- land's housing stock at the social and com- munity development forum quickly moved to whether the organisation should be involved in providing housing. Maungakiekie-Tamaki councillor Richard Nor- they told the meeting the council is in a position to provide housing for some members of the com- munity. Pensioner housing does pay for itself out of the rent.'' North Shore councillor Ann Hartley also supported more council involvement in housing. Local government can't opt out of housing. It doesn't necessarily cost ratepayers at all. I think what Auck- land city did a few years ago, selling council houses, is absolutely appalling.'' But other councillors quickly opposed any suggestion the council increase its stock of 1492 properties. Council should be advocating on behalf of our communities,'' North Shore councillor George Wood says. It's certainly not a role for local government in New Zealand to pro- vide housing. People are paying enough in rates now.'' Howick councillor Sha- ron Stewart also raised concerns. We can help with get- ting consents in place, but I don't think we should be involved in getting any housing for the elderly.'' Deputy mayor Penny Hulse reminded council- lors that at this stage the council is more interested in working with other agencies to provide affordable hous- ing than building more council-owned proper- ties. Autism clinicians to speak Autism New Zealand will be running a sem- inar on relationships and transitioning in con- junction with World Autism Awareness Day in April. Relationships and transitioning are two crucial issues which people with autism find extremely challenging. Minds and Hearts, specialists in Asperger's Syndrome and autism, was conceived to meet the enormous need for specialist services for people with autism spec- trum disorders. Two members of the Australian-based clinic have been invited to share their vast know- ledge and valuable skills again. The seminar is on April 1 from 9am to 1pm at the Fickling Centre, Three Kings.
