A plus the old historic buildings that have been saved in the Auckland CBD, but in Wellington and Christchurch the earthquake risk has revealed preservation to be a mistake. Generally speaking town planning has held Christchurch and Auckland back. What Christchurch and Auckland desperately need is for private enterprise and entrepenuers to be given the real say in the development of bars, clubs, hotels, licensing hours and apartments and for social planners, councils and town planners to have much less say. Surely the Wynyard courter was the previous councils work with a tame apology for a tram. The failure to put light rail up Q street, K Road and College Hill shows our planners and councils have no real courage anyway. The labour PC brigade are too predominant. Some of us don't want slow food and would actually like the sort of music and clubs that are in LA and Vegas. Some of us actually think hard rock should exist outside K road caves and Q street towers.

Great stuff finally some leadership on climate change from Labour. Lignite mining will just make a small number of people wealthy at the expense of the rest of us. We have no right to burden our island neighbours with rising seas and young people with a heated, unstable climate.
