WEST Coast woman’s flat top ban is to be scrapped after complaints she was making excuses for her flat top.
Key points:The council says it wants to “move beyond the negative comments” and will instead “focus on the positives” of the banAuckland council has banned the flat top after receiving a number of complaints from residentsThe council is considering banning the flat Top in the capital after receiving complaints from some residents.
The Auckland council said in a statement it had received numerous complaints from flat top users who were worried about the “negative comments” that were being made about the ban.
“The council’s focus is to move beyond the negativity and focus on the positive, as well as the positive of our policy.”
This is a step in the right direction to help ensure that flat tops are a welcomed part of our society.
“Auckland city council president David Shear said the council was looking at “all options” and was reviewing all flat tops in the city.”
There have been a number who have expressed concern about the flat tops and they are being addressed by the council,” Mr Shear told reporters.”
It’s a good policy and it’s going to be good for everyone.
“A number of flat tops have already been banned from the city since the ban was introduced, with a total of 20 bans already in place.
The council has now announced a further seven flats will be banned from being used in Auckland in 2018, as part of its ongoing efforts to reduce the number of flats that were illegally being used.”
We are looking at all options, including banning flat tops,” Mr Herar said.”
I think we’ve got a lot of work to do.
“Council leader John Kelleher said there had been “a lot of discussion” about the policy and he would be “making decisions as we go”.”
We will be moving towards a ban and we are going to make decisions on that over the next few months.
“So there’s going be some things we’re going to look at and there’s a lot we’re not going to do,” Mr Kelleer said.
“We will look at other things as we move forward.”
The council said it had already received a number in recent months who had expressed concerns about the effect the ban would have on them, and had written to the council in recent weeks asking it to consider a ban.
But Ms Taylor said she was concerned about what the flat was doing to the health of the flattops in her community.
“They’re not a very healthy place to be in,” Ms Taylor told ABC Radio’s Auckland 7.
“Some people don’t wear a flat top because they think it’s a fashion statement, or because they feel like they don’t want to get caught out.”
She said she thought it was a “problem” for people who were sick to wear a flatsuit to work because it would be difficult to walk around the flat.
“If it was not for the flat, I wouldn’t wear flats.
I’ve got some really nice clothes that I wear to work that have flat tops on.
I don’t need to wear flats,” she said.
The ban comes after an Auckland flat top banned from public transport for the first time in more than 30 years was also overturned.
