Endless spin cycle from Len Brown needs to stop

Public anger is growing against Len Brown and his endless ratepayer funded spin.


A public meeting of about 500 people has told the Auckland Council to rethink its intensification plans for the city, start listening to communities and stop spinning.

The biggest display of opposition to the council’s plans saw hundreds of people fill the Takapuna Grammar School hall yesterday calling for a rethink on a new planning rulebook for the city – or Unitary Plan. 

They came out in response to a new “grassroots” organisation, Auckland 2040, which revealed that half of residential urban land could be built up with three-storey apartments and residents will have no say.

After nine weeks of telling Aucklanders the maximum height of “small-scale apartments” in neighbourhoods was two storeys, the council admitted to the Herald on Friday the height limit was three storeys.

Len’s council has deliberately lied about apartment plans. All their brochures over the unitary falsely stated two storey apartments…and Len Brown has constantly used the 7% number for intensification when the reality is 56%.

Len Brown and his ratepayer funded liars need to seriously be challenged and held to account.
