Newstalk ZB: Rocket Fuel Added To Unitary Plan

Newstalk ZB reports my comments that the Unitary Plan Hearings Panel just released recommendations will add ‘rocket fuel’ to the plan that was proposed by Auckland Council in 2013.

I mention that very significant changes have been made including adopting most of the earlier residential out-of-scope proposals that Council rejected in February and abandoning the pre-1944 character protection overlay with no replacement provision.

Auckland needs more affordable housing, more quickly than we have been building it – but this plan looks to take the harder road to achieving that.
