Does Higher Density Housing Enhance Liveability? Case Studies of Housing Intensification in Auckland

Author Published Date Read Publication

This paper examines how liveability is enhanced in intensified suburban contexts.

Three case study areas in Auckland were used: Albany, New Lynn, and Onehunga. Key reasons for moving into higher-density housing were opportunities to form social networks, affordability, and proximity to schools, shopping, public transport, and employment. The research also examined walkability and car dependency where there was variation between the three case studies. A significant number of respondents reported using their car less since their move. Despite these positives, future housing aspirations tended to remain oriented to detached housing and lower densities. This raises policy issues for the promotion and management of urban consolidation and higher densities.
