Construkt discussion: Quality Compact City or Urban Sprawl?

The Unitary Plan for Auckland is to be notified on 30 September, the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act is now law. Will we get a quality compact city out of this or are we on the road to urban sprawl?

As part of our recent series of events looking at Auckland issues, our special guest speaker, Patrick Fontein of Studio D4, talked of work he has done on the Auckland Plan and Unitary Plan for Auckland Council, as well as his recent work for MBIE on reviewing the development potential of greenfield and brownfield land opportunities across Auckland targeted at answering this big question.
