Legal stuff up could hamper plans to build 15,000 new homes in special housing areas

  • A legal stuff up could hamper 15,000 new homes being built in special housing areas in Auckland, says Labour MP and Auckland mayoral candidate Phil Goff.

The MP has written to Housing Minister Nick Smith today, saying legal experts have pointed out a flaw in the Special Housing Area legislation and its transition into the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan.
