And more than 700 potential voters in the Rimutaka electorate have been taken off the electoral roll because their enrolment packs have been returned labelled not at this address . It s your right to vote. If you re not enrolled then you can t exercise that right. This year s uprisings and rebellions in the Middle East have occurred as groups pur- sue more freedoms, things that New Zea- landers would consider rights. It s important that we don t take our demo- cratic freedom for granted, not when there are people fight- ing to have that right elsewhere in the world, Mr Hipkins says. Voters can freetext their name and address to 3676, get a form from a Postshop or call Free- phone 0800 36 76 56. You can also enrol or update your details online at elections. org.nz. Mayors support family network The two Hutt Valley mayors have furthered their commitment to preventing and reducing family violence by becoming patrons of the Hutt Valley Family Violence Network. Upper Hutt mayor Wayne Guppy and Hutt City mayor Ray Wallace were announced as patrons of the network at a multi- agency governance group meeting on Wednesday. Inspector Mike Hill, Upper Hutt area police commander and relieving Lower Hutt area com- mander says both Mr Guppy and Mr Wallace have shown true lead- ership in their actions. Both mayors have extensive com- munity involvement and know full well the negative impacts of fam- ily violence. Family violence is not just a police problem , it s everyone s problem and I am delighted that the network has the support and commitment of our local councils, led from the top by both of our mayors. Mr Guppy says this is an issue for everyone in our cities. I am delighted to be patron because I know we can all make a difference. Our communities will be better places for everyone by taking a stand. Mr Wallace says he is happy to put his support behind the family violence network. Lower Hutt is a friendly, family-focused city, and I am shocked at the level of reported family violence. My support will include raising awareness of the problem and working with agencies to reduce the level of harm caused by family violence. The Hutt Valley Family Viol- ence Network was established in April 2010, following a community hui where 80 agencies attended, Mr Hill says. About 45 agencies are actively involved in the net- work, collectively working together towards the common goal of a violence-free Hutt Valley. Each month across the Hutt Valley, police attend about 250 family violence incidents. House values drop Upper Hutt house values are still decreasing, along with those from through- out the region. Latest QV figures have Upper Hutt drop- ping 3.5 per cent to an average value of $333,805. Other decreases range from 1.4 per cent in central and southern Wellington to 6 per cent in Lower Hutt. The QV residential property index shows that nationwide values increased in June, driven largely by the Auckland market. Nationwide property values increased in June after previously remaining relatively stable for several months. The gap in values between June this year and last year has closed to only -0.9 per cent, and values are now 5.2 per cent below the market peak of late 2007, QV.co.nz research director Jonno Ingerson says. Much of the gain in nationwide values can be attributed to increases in the Auck- land area. Apart from a minor hiccup in March, values have increased by over 2 per cent in greater Auckland since January, Mr Ingerson says. He says the gains in Auckland city are because of a range of factors including the lack of quality properties for sale, strong demand for established character locations and good school zones, and the perception that buying in central Auckland is a safe investment. The Wellington area is the only main centre where values have continuing to decline in recent months. Values have dropped over a per cent since January, and now sit 3.3 per cent below the same time last year. Uncertainty around restructuring in the public sector may be causing some homeowners to take a more conservative approach to the property market, he says.
