Example Given, Now need more!
From The Spinoff:
The team behind the Daisy apartment building respond to the fury it unleashed from Mike Hosking. Daisy exists because Ockham Residential set a goal of building an international best practice sustainable urban residence. Tāmaki Makaurau is maturing into the South Pacific’s most vibrant and cosmopo
Daisy is an example of the Unitary Plan working as intended (nor the first mind you) with quality developments (without the need for excessive or any parking at all) in close proximity to transit lines and stations.
If we can replicate this with a National Policy Statement from Central Government to encourage more of these developments in proximity to Rapid Transit Network stations and routes (heavy rail and light rail stations and corridors). The NPS would also need to be able to rid of any Minimum Parking requirements in our Centre Zones (Metropolitan and Town Centres) when it comes to retail and other commercial activities.
None-the-less Ockham are showing the way and there are others doing the same when it comes to sustainable developments – the future of Auckland!
