Concerns over Government's urban planning policy

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:15 pm on 16 July 2021

We have a look at the challenges of urban planning amidst a housing crisis and fears new government policy could create 'urban slums'.

Claire Dale has penned a piece for Newsroom about her concerns, warning that "lower-priced housing that is not liveable is not progress".

Dr Dale is a research fellow at Auckland University's Retirement Policy and Research Centre in the Department of Economics and talks to Jesse about the concerns she's got with the policy.
