Welcome Bryce to the Auckland Blogging Community.
Excellent to see a fellow citizen from the North of the City to blog on urban and transport issues 🙂
I will from time to time reblog some of the big issues from the North that have regional consequences.
Again though welcome Bryce 🙂
Welcome to The Orewa Urbanist. This site will mostly cover the Orewa area but also the surrounding Hibiscus Coast region and will ink to various sources of valuable information from around the world. If you’re unsure what ‘urbanism’ is, sit back and enjoy.
For background, I ride a bike when I can, I use public transport when I can, walk and yes, drive a car. I live in a 2 bedroom terraced apartment (with my wife and son) in the Kensington Park development at the northern end of Orewa. This is a quality medium density development and is, I believe, one of the very best in Auckland.
This blog is not about favouring modes of transport or types of dwelling you may wish to live in but more to perhaps open your mind to possibilities you may not have thought of. Well designed density is not something to be scared of.
