Seasons Greetings to all
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Summer Holiday.
For me (and Rebekka) we are going away to Tauranga to unwind, refresh and enjoy some annual leave before 2012 and the challenges it brings with it (moving into our first house next month)
In the mean time, View of Auckland takes a wee break until I return from leave January 4th and then again in late January as we move house.
I am honestly excited here, 2012 will be a great year for many reasons. Both mine and Rebekka’s careers’ with Veolia Transdev Auckland (metro rail) continue to progress with Rebekka taking her promotion up as Customer Information Officer (The Red Coats) at Britomart; while I continue exploring new opportunities with the company and other things.
Away from work, I will be focused intensely on the Auckland Council as the Draft Auckland Spatial Plan become finalised and realised as well as the first Long Term Plan for the Super City. Through this Blog I will be delivering commentary and discussion on issues in Auckland, bringing in external academic information to provide a balanced approach to the major debate out there (Sprawl or Compact). This blog is in its infancy, but I am confident it will grow and debates and discussions will get going.
So Merry Christmas to all
And be seeing you soon in 2012
