The truth about Gables residential home
FourFourThree homes are in need of repair in Gables, as council considers installing a new water system at the popular beachfront home.
The new system, which is expected to cost about $100,000, would be a $1.3 million investment in the area, which sits in the middle of Gables and its affluent North End.

Gables resident Tony Jones, 54, who lives at the beachfront property, said the new system is “not going to be a good thing for me”.
“It is going to make it worse,” he said.
“People are going to look out and think they can just walk up and take a view of what is going on.””
It’s just not going to solve the problem. “

Mr Jones said he is concerned about how the new water supply system would affect his neighbour, who is also on the same property. “
This is not the time to put a new roof on a building.”
Mr Jones said he is concerned about how the new water supply system would affect his neighbour, who is also on the same property.
He said the water would leak out of the house.
“The main issue is that I have the water running in the front yard,” he explained.
“The main thing is it is going out through the roof.
It is leaking through the front and then down into the house, where the water comes out of.”
A spokesman for Gables council said it was not yet finalising a project schedule for the water supply upgrade.
But the spokeswoman said a council report was expected this year.
Council also said the existing water supply had been breached in the past.
A spokesperson for the Gable Water Authority said it did not comment on individual projects, but said it would continue to “provide a full range of water and sewage services”.
It added that the council had a plan in place to address the water issues.
