What's the best plan for Auckland's infrastructure future?

Local Government Magazine has been hanging out with the Auckland Council family [aka CCOs too], friends from other councils, universities and other plugged-in folk at a two-day think-fest looking at how the infrastructure that council provides affects liveability for everyone in the city.

Together they generated a huge number of ideas on everything from housing and development; Maori thinking on liveability; resilience and interdependency; smart cities; the social aspects of liveability; and water sensitivity and green infrastructure.
Now the big job starts. These ideas get chunked down into workable bites and plugged back into an action plan for long-term infrastructure thinking.
See photos here. More details in Local Government Magazine’s October issue.
