Record Breaking Month

Latest NZ Blog Rankings Out


April has been a flat tact month (even with Easter and ANZAC Day in the mix) for BR:AKL with a new record set in visitors, page views, and ranking on the Open Parachute NZ Blog Rankings. Lets take a look:


April ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

55 Ben Ross: Auckland 3245 5639


Virtually a 100% jump on the March figures (compounded by me being in Australia at that time).


The Unitary Plan is sure generating feedback and reading as the extensive BR:AKL commentary continues with two highlights coming up this month: the May 2nd presentation to the Orakei Local Board on Special Character Zones, and the May 14 Auckland Plan Committee presentation – challenging the planning thinking behind Auckland as well as seeing Manukau as the second CBD.


Again a massive thank you to all the readers, the commenters, and the feedback via email and social media. Without you this blog would not be possible 



To a very busy May ahead as the first round of Unitary Plan feedback draws to a close – at the end of the month
