Do you people get some sort of prize or chocolate gold medal for reaching 4.3 million? No offense but it has to be asked.

My point exactly.

NZ probably would lose a lot of its character with anymore than about 6 million people. I think Auckland may work well as a city of 2 to 2.5 million, as long as we intensify and don't sprawl. Other cities are sadly only likely to grow through sprawl...

Yes. And it ain't a pretty sight.

Sure...just as long as they stay in the NORTH Island, though.

So if NZ is not far off 4.3 mil what is Auckland at the moment ?
Is Auckland's sprawl encroaching on any other north island city to possibly become part of greater AKL ?

Yes, Orewa/Whangaparoa.

Well theoretically Auckland isn't going to sprawl much further. There has been an urban limit since the late 90s that's pretty strictly enforced. A few additional areas of greenfields development are likely in the future around Takanini, Flat Bush, Westgate, Hingaia and Ranui, but apart from that most of Auckland's future growth should be through intensification.

Orewa/Whangaparaoa are generally considered part of Auckland, and in any case should remain separate as the Stillwater/Dairy Flat greenbelt is pretty strongly protected.

So in Auckland, a quarter-acre is not going to be the norm? (never been to Auckland so don't know if it isn't the norm currently or what, someone enlighten me).

Certainly not the norm for new houses. I think that's a thing of the past these days. Land prices are just too high.

Quarter-acre hasn't been the norm for about 30 years. The typical new section size in sprawl suburbs is 400 m2. That's about 40% of a quarter-acre.
