Reading your article on the meeting they announced that 90% of people spoken to would use a ferry service to Onehunga, who are the 90%? Is it 90% of 10? Speaking to our developer person (lip service) most of the residents would work local, can someone tell me the location of these 3000 jobs, schools they had no idea, public transport no idea, yet this is all rubber stamped by Nick Smith.
This whole scheme is a political beat up to show the government is doing something about Auckland’s problem; sorry we do not live in Auckland we purchased our houses in Glenbrook, if I was to ask 90% of Aucklander’s where Waiuku is they would not even know which island, North or South. Sorry but the end of Glenbrook beach road is not a place to build 800 houses.
Dave (Letter edited) Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
