Have a go at set­ting out how you think Auck­land should grow.

The Shape Auck­land Hous­ing Sim­u­la­tor chal­lenges you to find space for an­other 400,000 houses across the city.

Coun­cil­lor Michael Goudie says it is try­ing out new meth­ods to get res­i­dents en­gaged with the draft uni­tary plan.

‘‘Auck­land’s a big and var­ied place but the sim­u­la­tor gives peo­ple a really sim­ple way to vi­su­alise some of the de­ci­sions that need to be made through the uni­tary plan. It shows the trade-offs be­tween heights in our cen­tres, growth in den­sity across sub­ur­ban Auck­land and growth out into ru­ral ar­eas.’’
