Whitford forestry block sell-off to house only ‘handfuls’ of Aucklanders

  • A huge chunk of forestry land on Auckland’s fringe is up for grabs, but rather than solving the city’s housing crisis it’s scheduled for affluent lifestyle blocks.

Under current zoning, an Auckland Council spokesman said the massive blocks of Whitford land could house “handfuls, rather than hundreds”.

The two sections for sale comprise 1683 hectares of Whitford Forest, located about 30km southeast of Auckland City.
