Youth please mayor
Auckland mayor Len Brown says he is delighted with the youth of Auckland.
Young people are giving ‘‘articulate and thoughtful’’ feedback on the proposed draft unitary plan.
‘‘Overwhelmingly, young people have been a clear and positive voice in the discussion on the future of Auckland,’’ he says.
‘‘They have been clear they support a balanced and wellplanned approach to our city’s growth that will protect our environment, help make our city more vibrant and dynamic and deliver a greater range of housing choices.’’
Mr Brown says 60 per cent of Auckland’s increasing population in the next 30 years will come from the children of those who live here.
‘‘It’s right that all parts of our community have a say on the draft unitary plan, including the young Aucklanders who are the future of our city,’’ he says.
