Mid-term evaluation:
At the final HNH Committee meeting of 2020, it was resolved to look at how each elected member voted on highrise / heritage / street-scapes / view-lines, how each used social media, plus mentions in the Mercury i.e. what's available in the public domain - all since the local government elections in late 2018.

This took a lot of research, tracking down dates, minutes, Mercury articles, etc. We have been taking screenshots of facebook & twitter posts for many months. These are the results of our research so far:

Skyscraper Definition:
"A skyscraper is a machine that is designed to turn land into money." [from 'The 99% Invisible City' by Roman Mars & Kurt Kohlstedt, 2020, p191]

Major Projects:
Sadly, the Major Projects Bill has been passed by both houses of parliament. We note that the government has, on a number of occasions, said that this legislation will not be used for highrise towers. However, the legislation allows highrise towers. Many thanks to the hundreds who made submissions against the proposed Major Projects legislation.
