Altho' Auckland is already a poorly planned city, the NZ Government (Nick Smith) and Super City Council (Len Brown) seem determined to make things worse by accelerating the process of building huge numbers of houses without the supporting infrastructure such as roads, railways and social services etc.
It certainly makes me wonder what sort of ideological drugs they on which makes the obvious appear unnecessary - like intelligent Town Planning and financial restraints on speculators and banks. I suppose they are still hooked on Monetarism. Where the real estate market is supposed to sort itself out with cycles of boom and bust and set the value of the biggest asset most people will ever own, by operating the city like a casino.
