Locals angry over development plans

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 28 June 2023

Locals in rural parts south of Auckland city are angry that the council wants to shift the goalposts on how the area is developed.

The region is forecast to see thousands of new homes over the next 30 years.

Residents from areas including Papakura, Takanini and Drury expected these homes to be built on greenfields, and reject the council's plan to instead go for intensification.
