Off to the Council Planning Committee. Topic: Auckland’s boom, the pressures facing Southern Auckland

First public input session under Goff Administration

 

On the 7th of March (so next week) I will be presenting to the Auckland Council Planning Committee (Public Pnput section) on: ‘Auckland’s boom, the pressures facing Southern Auckland.’

This will be the first Public Input I have attended to since the Goff Administration started late last year after being a regular feature in the previous Len Brown Administration.

 

The presentation covers recent Urban Geography posts I had done:

The ultimate premise being that despite the Unitary Plan going live and the Future Urban Land Supply Strategy meant to be guiding land releases in the Future Urban Zone, I have been informed that pressure to release all of the Southern Future Urban Zone as quickly as possible is mounting. That pressure to release the Southern FUZ does not bother me as the South with proper planning can easily take it. What will bother me is Government and Council getting in the road especially if they can not keep up with infrastructure investment.
