    Agreed.
    I wont even go into the Auckland CBD any more.
    If I was a Queen Street retailer (are there any left?) I'd be hopping mad right now.

    It's much like how Councils are keen to grow new suburbs - (some, in the middle of nowhere) and there's not even a dairy yet alone a supermarket etc.

    We have seen that in beach towns that have grown from a few bachs to streets of homes - and you have to travel 5KM to get to a shop.

    Hi Donna.

    I agree too.
    You've hit the nail on the head there.

    With this particular Corinthian example, I wonder what will happen with the remaining land. (See kindly provided map).
    If this continues, it will only become more dysfunctional.

    At the end of the day, there is always a person making the final decision.
    I wonder who that person is, and are they doing their job right.
    Could there even be some sort of pressure or incentive for them to swing the decision away from public functionality, and toward private profit?

    Often these types of properties are the best deals if in a decent location. With some renovation and a change or addition of tenancies a small fortune can be made.

    Hi Flyer.
    Same here.

    And don't forget about the parking meters.
    on Corinthian drive , as most places, the council have put Parking Meters.

    They have effectively rewarded themselves for poor performance.
    Given themselves a revenue stream for getting it wrong.

    It would be like praising an employee for always getting to work late, or doing a bad job.
    Like giving a school kid higher marks for getting more test answers wrong.

    Its a weird kind of mirror world , where dysfunction is rewarded.
