The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
How worried are you about coastal erosion in Auckland?
Auckland's shoreline could recede by 200m by 2130 if little to no action on climate change is taken.
The report, titled "Predicting Auckland's exposure to coastal instability and erosion", details the impacts this will have on communities the Auckland region.
Sea level rise is notoriously difficult for scientists to follow and this has meant coastal erosion rates have been difficult to predict.
New Zealand's sea levels have risen an average 1.67mm per year since 1989, but the Ministry of Environment says this will accelerate if little action is taken on climate change.
