New Zealand Density Controls #HousingLandscape

These images from the ABC story on the NZ development controls show just how appalling they are. There is no need for density to obliterate landscape. Imagine if every lot did this! Wholesale destruction of neighbourhood character, amenity and privacy. Density needs a street, block, lot and building type approach! Not just a building type change. This is such a knee jerk development amendment, which will create the slums of the future.


This sort of development shows all the problems of developing  deep lots with little street frontage. Access is limited, while neighbouring interface is maximised. This has several knock on effects, due to an inefficient density.  In essence this no more than multi story villa housing, not dense enough for basement parking, cars must be housed above ground and the landscape suffers as a result.
