Auckland housing affordability solutions

The recent residential development summit suggested: • Reform the Resource Management Act to speed up new supply (Nick Smith) I’d agree with this one, go Nick. • Open up more land for development faster (Shamubeel Eaqub) Another good idea, more supply to match the demand. Makes sense. • Make banks hold more capital as a buffer against a downturn (Mr Eaqub) Not sure why this would make housing more affordable. • Remove tax incentives on rental property (Mr Eaqub) I don’t want to say stupid idea but it really is. The Australian government tried this in 1984 and all it did was result in a massive shortage of property and then the government had to increase incentives to get investors back into the market. The tax benefits are not sufficient enough to curb the desire for property as an investment. • Establish new council-owned Auckland Development Agency (Penny Hulse) Not sure about this one. I don’t know enough about how it would work to comment. • Acknowledge and further the work of the council’s Housing Project Office (Nick Smith) Again I don’t know enough about the HPO to comment. via Auckland housing affordability...

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach (pano) 01, a photo by Swallia23 on Flickr. Oh what a view…..the gaze down a beach at any time of day , at any time of year is an absolute treasure. Pat Conroy said “…Then another porpoise broke the water and rolled toward us. A third and fourth porpoise neared. The visitation was something so rare and perfect that we knew by instinct not to speak—and then as quickly as they had come, the porpoises moved away from us…Each of us would remember that all during our lives. It was the purest moment of freedom and headlong exhilaration that I had ever felt. A wordless covenant was set, and I would go back in my imagination, and return to where happiness seemed so easy to touch.” Psyche Roxas-Mendoza said “Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so...

Beach Homes

“I thought of you and how you love this beauty, And walking up the long beach all alone I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder As you and I once heard their monotone. Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me The cold and sparkling silver of the sea — We two will pass through death and ages lengthen Before you hear that sound again with me.” ― Sara Teasdale “The fog was where I wanted to be. Halfway down the path you can’t see this house. You’d never know it was here. Or any of the other places down the avenue. I couldn’t see but a few feet ahead. I didn’t meet a soul. Everything looked and sounded unreal. Nothing was what it is. That’s what I wanted—to be alone with myself in another world where truth is untrue and life can hide from itself. Out beyond the harbor, where the road runs along the beach, I even lost the feeling of being on land. The fog and the sea seemed part of each other. It was like walking on the bottom of the sea. As if I had drowned long ago. As if I was the ghost belonging to the fog, and the fog was the ghost of the sea. It felt damned peaceful to be nothing more than a ghost within a ghost.” ― Eugene O’Neill,   Manhattan Beach_homes (pano) 2, a photo by Swallia23 on...
