The stars are aligned…
For better or worse, we now have cross-party agreement that Auckland’s proposed rural-urban-boundary is a bad idea.

Supposedly responsible for escalating residential land prices, it now looks unlikely to be included in the Independent 

Hearing Panel’s recommendations to Council.  That of course begs several important questions, such as:

 Will the outward expansion be satellite cities, planned communities, or just ordinary sprawl?
 Who will pay to install services in the vast areas envisaged to be opened up thereby reducing price?
 How will transport be organised in the new areas, or will we just build roads?

Anyway, the announcement by the Labour party last week triggered this interview on National Radio between chairman Graeme Scott and Jesse Mulligan. http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/afternoons/audio/201801310/explaining-the-auckland-housing-crisis
