Is a regulatory issue impacting on your business?
GETBA may be able to make it easier for you by providing the right contact in Council, and depending on the nature of the issue we may be able to lend weight to your cause. We may also be able to assist with local power or telecommunications issues.
GETBA facilitates Vector cable replacement
Twenty businesses in lower Lady Ruby Drive were suffering from ongoing power outages. GETBA became involved in advocating for these businesses and a replacement cable and installation of a new network link pillar has been completed. Most of the work was done out of business hours to minimise impact.
Common issues we can help with include:
- Graffiti - Contact Scott Henderson, Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust on 09 269 4080. Free removal if visible from the road, otherwise MBT will provide a quote for removal. For all premises that are within the GETBA Business Improvement District, graffitti will be removed from road facing surfaces to a height of 3 metres above ground level. In the case of the MBCT not having an exact paint match for the affected area, the business or property owner will need to supply the paint. For affected surfaces that are not road facing or above 3 metres the MBCT can still assist but a charge will be incurred.
- Dumped rubbish - the dumping of tyres and other rubbish is relatively common. If dumped on public property Council will arrange collection - call 0800 NO DUMP (0800 663 867) 24/7.
- Polluting of drains/waterways - call Pollution Hotline: Ph 377 3107 8am-5pm, 7 days.
