Intensive housing has come in Te Atatū Peninsula, NZ Herald reports, and many say it can’t handle the growth. Almost every road in Te Atatu Peninsula has sections being cleared to make way for row upon row of two- and three-storey townhouses. Two Te Atatū Road sites were purchased by property development financers Pearlfisher Capital, and a recent Auckland Council resource consent application shows 20 new terraced townhouses will be built on the 1752 square metre site, providing homes and car parks for up to 60 people.
