What you've told us
As a farmer with land adjacent to lifestyle development it may seem strange that I am strongly in favour of limiting the city housing spread. Common business decisions suggest that I should encourage housing on my land because of the huge increase in the value of said land. However the Poverty Bay flats are some of the most productive and fertile land in the country and it is imperative that it is protected for food production. Once lost to housing we can never get it back. It is time to consider multistory dwellings closer to the CBD where people can live and easily commute to work without transport ?

There should be a focus on aligning development strategies with reinvigorating the central district. Mixed use and higher density housing within the CBD will encourage activity in this area.
