Statistics out this morning show the four fastest-growing regions in New Zealand are Auckland, Canterbury, Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

1:25 The Playground with No Parents and No Rules

It's a playground with no rules, no parents and a lot of risk. It's called the playborhood, and it's an anti-helicopter parent's plea, to allow kids to take risks without any supervision.

Mike Lanza built the playborhood at his home in California, as a place for his three boys to play, and he welcomes kids from all over the neighbourhood. He is author of the book Playborhood: Turn Your Neighborhood Into a Place for Play and blogs at playborhood.com. But not everyone is so keen on the idea.
