Paget Street debacle reminds us of Turua Street
The recent media coverage of the demolition consent granted for 18 Paget Street Freemans Bay is Turua Street all over again. This time the media has made it clear where the problem lies and have laid the blame squarely at the feet of the Auckland Council planning Department. It is obvious that the process is flawed and unless it is changed we will continue to lose our heritage and character areas all over the city. The elected Councillors and local boards must be feeling very frustrated that they cannot get their officials into line. Its a very bad look for the Mayor Brown who promised things would be different under his rule.
