Studies have found that the population of Wellington is continuing to increase, therefore, creating an increased demand for housing. To accommodate this increasing population and housing demand, there has been a push towards creating higher densities. Research states that higher-density living is an effective response to increasing populations and housing demand, however, it raises the issue of higher-density housing neglecting family-friendly living. Therefore, this paper aims to identify why higher-density housing is not family-friendly, and how this can change to support family-friendly living.
