'Let Auckland spread out': Twyford wants to drop urban boundary


New Housing Minister Phil Twyford wants to scrap Auckland's regulated urban boundary to let the city spread.
He told Lisa Owen on TV3's The Nation today that solving Auckland's housing crisis will require "fixing" both the system of financing new infrastructure and the rural/urban boundary fixed in the current Auckland Plan.
"Given the shortfall of housing in Auckland and the population and growth projections, this city is going to have to go up and out," he said.

The open day attracted a load of curious community members, including a group of pupils from the local school.

The Northcote Development will replace 300 state houses with approximately 1200 new homes, a mix of social, affordable and market housing over the next six years.
