    One definition for 'midden' is 'cess pit'.

    So it seems as though not only are iwi so special that their 'sh!t don't stink' it is now also apparently a national treasure worth preserving!

    unitech prof

    puts the boot

    into unitary plan

    “I am not against compact urbanism as such, and I do believe Auckland needs more of it.

    But about 30% of all future growth would be just about right. In other words, I could support an exactly reverse ratio

    – 30% of future growth by intensification, 70% by greenfield, satellite & upper North Island centres

    – as opposed to the council’s ideology-driven, no-evidence-whatsoever-based fantasy.


    “The council’s vision is not only unrealistic – for a host of spatial, legal, financial, economic, cultural & political reasons – it is also unnecessary.

    “But worse of all, the council’s 70% vision is dangerous:

    Auckland is one of the most exposed cities in the world to natural hazards.

    Add to this the growing global warming-associated uncertainty over weather systems, and put it on top Auckland’s tricky physical geography

    “Again, I am uncomfortable with my institute supporting an urban planning vision which is

    not based on science but ideology, and cannot become a reality even if it was a good idea.

    and I'd expect many people here to decry him as out of touch with reality - he is an academic after all.
