John Palino: Housing solution must look outside council-imposed box

  • John Palino is standing for Mayor of Auckland at the local elections this year.

Make no mistake, Auckland is in crisis and it is a crisis of the council’s making. Housing is unaffordable due to artificial restrictions on land supply. The existing council’s compact city growth vision has not worked and has led to a chronic undersupply of houses. Many people in Auckland cannot afford even our cheapest home



By making it possible for people to live close to where they work we would reduce congestion and end the council-created housing affordability crisis. Photo / NZME.
