Hero removed from advertisement

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has decided that former Olympic rower Eric Murray shouldn’t have featured in beer advertisements because he’s a 'hero of the young'.

Local Council Long-Term Plans

Councils are currently reviewing their 10 year plans. There are over 70 councils in NZ and it is likely your organisation could have input into influencing what happens in your local area.

Councils may be asking for submissions to inform the future of your region.

Numerous local council planning decisions affect our ability to live healthy lifestyles such as the provision of cycleways, upgrade of parks, provision of public swimming pools, proving community meeting rooms, reduced traffic congestion, provision of clean water fountains, food policies on food vendors at local sports parks…

New Zealand Recreation Association have shared their submissions on their website.

ANA has two evidence snapshots which could also provide useful background to help with your submissions:

  1. Promoting Healthy Eating at the Local Government Level; and
  2. Promoting Physical Activity at the Local Government Level.

Key Facts About Sugar

Information on sugar, the differences in the types of sugars, data on consumption and sugar requirements in the Food Standards Code is now available from Food Standards Australia New Zealand.

75 percent of Older Adults at Risk of Malnutrition

Almost 75% of older NZ adults involved in a recent Massey University study were at risk of malnourishment or were malnourished, when they were admitted to hospital.

Local Government Amendment Bill

The main objectives of this community wellbeing bill are to:

  • restore the purpose of local government 'to promote the social, economic, environmental, and cultural wellbeing of communities';
  • restore territorial authorities' power to collect development contributions for any public amenities needed as a consequence of development; and
  • make a minor modification to the development contributions power.

Submissions close on Friday 25th May 2018.
