An interactive map from Auckland Council shows which suburbs will be impacted by new standards designed to “intensify” housing in cities, Stuff reports. The council has been required by the government to implement the National Policy Statement on Urban development, which will allow apartment buildings of at least six storeys within 10 minutes walk of a train station. The new standards will also allow for apartment buildings within walking distances of town centres where there are a concentration of services and jobs.
