Every house in New Lynn is now being sold as a "development opportunity". Intensive terraced and multiunit developments are going up everywhere driving existing residents out of their homes and resulting in massive loss of greenspace and trees. This council clearly doesn't give a toss about climate change. These new developments are purely for the benefit of offshore investors who are still allowed to buy new builds. Many of the new units are still empty, priced out of reach of first home buyers. Now a massive new 5 storey development is planned for Rata Street plus others in the neighbourhood. They are all issued non notified consents in spite of multiple infringements. This council needs to be held accountable.
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.
