Is Manukau becoming anti-business??

This from the Herald this morning.

[quote]… the proposals have provoked an unprecedented show of unity by rivals Westfield New Zealand, AMP Capital Shopping Centres and Progressive Enterprises.

The companies say the proposed changes will discourage investment in good buildings and squeeze shopkeepers who cannot pass on higher rents.[/quote]

Clearly Manukau's rating policy along with other councils are starting to impact on business.

Councils should really be encouraging businesses to establish not discourage them.
