How are you going to pay for that Len?

Len Brown has assembled a wish-list of massive spending.

The Auckland Council has drawn up a $5.5 billion wishlist to transform the city centre and waterfront over the next 20 years.

By far the biggest project is the $2.4 billion inner city rail loop, which is top of Mayor Len Brown’s list to turn Auckland into the world’s most liveable city.

The rail project aside, the redevelopment of the waterfront has been costed at $2 billion over the next 20 years and $1.1 billion to improve the central city. Both of the projects fall within the overall 30-year Draft Auckland Plan.

Len Brown has zero ability to pay for all that. He think she will be able to scare up the money from central government. Most likely is he will tax ratepayers hard to pay for his follies.
