Well it seems this Herald article (as well as wider comments elsewhere): ‘Illegal’ to build a house in Auckland for less than $500k – English made Twitter look like someone gave it some red food colouring today with the amount of heated debate going backwards and forwards.

I got caught up on the Auckland development and commute argument again with Transport Blog – which was to be somewhat expected. However, one good thing I like about my blog is that acts like a central repository for commentary, thoughts, and other pieces on particular issues over the years.

In this post I am collating some posts or submissions previously done on Auckland’s development including transport and urban environments.
