Learning from Brisbane

All the various local government areas of Auckland in New Zealand have been mashed together to make one super-council. (Something similar was done here in Brisbane in the 1920s). A new town plan is being prepared for Auckland, and there is hot debate about protecting the character of older residential areas. We had a similar debate in Brisbane back in the 1990s.

Demolition Control Precincts (the hatched areas), and houses on the Heritage Register, in part of Highgate Hill, in the Brisbane City Plan.

This morning on Radio New Zealand, journalist Wayne Brit­ten­den presented his opinion about the state of affairs in Auckland (not flattering), and the radio host interviewed me and one of the new City Councilors. You can listen to the whole session on the Radio New Zealand website.
