Auckland Council's recent planning committee meeting took place last night.
The focus was on mass housing reforms, which could see rates of housing re-intensification rise across Tamaki Makaurau.
To learn more about the decisions made, Trishil took over the segment from Liam this week and spoke with councillor Shane Henderson on our regular City Counselling segment. The conversation touched on the pay rise for bus drivers in Auckland in a measure to combat staff shortages.
The High Court has ruled in favour of Auckland Transport in a case brought against the council managed organisation by All Aboard Aotearoa.
The case was over Auckland Transport’s Regional Land Transport Plan or RLTP which would lead to a 6% increase in transport emissions in Auckland.
For our fortnightly chat with Auckland City counsellor Pippa Coom, as part of our regular city counselling segment Casper and Pippa discussed the RLTP case as well as an update on the local election process.
