Rebooting the Regions in the press


Rebooting the Regions has been getting fantastic coverage across the media.

Russel Blackstock writes in the Herald on Sunday about how our smaller regions can fare in the shadow of the Super City:

'The irresistible magnet of booming Auckland has left many regions outside our biggest city wrestling with a tricky problem. Hardly a day goes by without news headlines screaming about average house prices in Auckland nudging the $1 million mark — then there's the hype about the inexorable rise of $2m suburbs and how 400,000 more homes will be needed in the next 30 years to cope with newcomers. It is a story of growth. Lots of it. ... A new book published this week Rebooting the Regions argues if many of these communities are to survive they need to stop trying to follow Auckland's rise and accept they are in decline rather than fight it.'
