Auckland house-builds delayed by airforce base noise

From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 14 February 2019

Work on hundreds of new Auckland homes is being delayed by a year or more because Auckland Council is worried about noise from engine testing at the airforce base. The council is having a second go at setting the building rules for a zone that will allow for more than 6,000 new homes in Whenuapai - one of the key areas pegged for development in the city. But some developers say it's taking way too long and putting the brakes on homes the city desperately needs.
