Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Unitary Plan A Milestone But No Silver Bullet

Fairfax picked up my comment┬áthat although passage of the Unitary Plan is a significant milestone it’s no silver bullet.

Auckland mayoral candidate Mark Thomas said the plan’s passing was an important milestone but significant challenges remained.

“Without the next Auckland Council boosting funding to transport and other housing-related infrastructure, and to improving consent processing times, not enough new affordable housing will be delivered quickly enough … The larger challenge is now actually delivering more affordable housing in Auckland and this plan is no silver bullet for that.”
