Mt Hobson Group gains local attention

For Immediate Release
Mt Hobson Group gains local attention with timely, consistent news opinions

2012-11-13

Mt Hobson Group newsletter gains local attention by commending Auckland council on their most recent decisions to allow an application for a controversial city centre brothel to continue construction in Auckland; and the recent council record fine for illegal dumping that was handed out to Adams Landscapes.

Hamish Firth, Mt Hobson Group principal is developing a reputation and local following for his opinionated monthly updates regarding Auckland government goings on. While not always thrilled with what he terms as “bloody red tape”, Firth is a fan of fair treatment and has, for this reason, condoned council’s recent controversial actions.

In regards to the CBD brothel, Firth writes, “[The Auckland council report] could only draw one logical conclusion – a recommendation of approval... If I read the facts and plans correctly the brothel will only occupy one level... The building has been designed by an award winning architect. It is not out of context in terms of built form or use for the area it stands in... Activities like gambling and prostitution usually hang out together. So we either ban both or accept that both are legal.”
Firth has extensive commercial, industrial and residential resource management experience. This includes approval for 400+ unit apartment developments, sensitive heritage building restoration and conversions, residential and industrial land subdivisions and mixed-use developments.
