A man in Whanganui attacks the wrong house with an axe, and Napier City Council's proposed mutli-use velodrome is put on hold till later in the year. These are just two of the stories making headlines around the regions today.

A man who attacked a house with an axe ran away when he realised it was the wrong house.

Progress on Napier City Council's proposed multi-use velodrome is on hold until after local body elections in October.

Tauranga rates will increase by $65 a year if the council decides to press ahead with plans to build a new civic office building in the downtown.

The number of Rotorua properties selling is continuing to jump and median prices are on the rise - but the district remains one of the most affordable places in the region to buy.

The number of Northland property sales in May was the third highest of any month in the past year and only 10 sales below a new record.

Reaction to the condition of trees planted in Masterton's town square has prompted a couple to question the competence of the district council.
