Talking Southern Auckland

Err Where are our 5-8 bedroom houses?


It seems I stirred a bit of passion today with the city when I posted my Mixed Zone Housing debunking postearlier today. I will comment on that in another post but, one aspect that I did raise was the three storey super house and walk up apartments.

I want to look at these two concepts that seemed to have been missed by both the Unitary Plan and the Herald (Orsman you awake?).

After the Mixed Housing, Terrace Housing and Apartment debates that has occurred around the city I began to focus on something that has been strangely quiet; Super large houses and Walk-Up Apartments. While WUA’s I have mentioned before, SLA’s I have not mentioned in Unitary Plan commentary.

To make this easy I am going to provide some rough definitions here:

  • Small House: 2 bedrooms
  • Medium House: 3 bedrooms
