surfisup1000: Council's are encouraging high density housing but failing to adequately enforce environmental lifestyle laws.
I know that in the UK they have moved away from High density wherever possible. I think that here in NZ the same is true.
Councils are ...... but failing to adequately enforce environmental lifestyle laws? I may misunderstand what you are saying, but council and lifestyle are two separate issues. I personally find your suggestion a bit Orwellian and would prefer to see that individual lifestyle choice and performance continues to equal the end housing result. I do however support moderate protection for low performers, but we cannot hold peoples hands forever.
If we enforce everything, the common denominator will be the support of the laziest and lowest performing end result.
