Consultation on Auckland’s cost-share deal with government now open

Aucklanders are being asked whether they support a deal with government to share the costs of funding $2 billion of storm recovery and resilience programmes, in a consultation which launches today. 

People have until 24 September to have their say on whether Auckland Council should enter into the $2 billion recovery funding agreement, and can share their views on how they think property buy-outs for Auckland’s most high-risk homes could work.

Deputy Mayor Desley Simpson says the consultation is an important next step in Auckland’s recovery following the unanimous, in-principle endorsement of the agreement by Governing Body.

Developer 'licking wounds' after North Shore residents halt development of 81 apartments

A group of residents in Auckland’s Beach Haven have won their fight to stop a proposed block of 81 apartments which they say would have brought crime and young people to the suburb.

A panel of commissioners released their decision, declining an application by Bentley Studios to redevelop a large site on the corner of Cresta Avenue and Beach Haven Road on the North Shore.

Bentley Studios director Leon Da-Silva said the company was “licking its wounds” after the shock decision.

“It’s been three years trying to get consent to build affordable houses in a nice suburb, but the residents living in $2 million houses only want more of the same.”
