Former bFM newsteamers Mandus Örarbäck and Caitlin McIlhagga (now General Manager) report on the decision to declare Ihumātao a Special Housing Area.

Cabinet ministers are discussing changes to the Correction Act, on what mail can be sent and received by Prisoners. This comes after Corrections MInister Kelvin Davis reveals the alleged shooter of the Christchurch terror attacks sent five letters to people’s unidentified by Corrections. The letter was sent to a supporter in Russia, which was then posted on the website 4chan, popular with the alt-right, and white supremacists. 

Prime Minister Jacinda Arden says discussions included whether the current law takes into account mail being published to a wider audience or captures broad hate speech. However corrections chief executive Christine stevenson has accepted its staff could have withheld those letters under current law. 

Sherry spoke to barrister Marie Dyhrberg and People Against Prison Aotearoa’s Emilie Rakete on whether the current legislation is sufficient in stopping abusive, threatening content and hate speech being sent from prisons.

This morning the government announced a discussion document on a new approach to urban planning. Announced by the Minister for Urban Development and the Minister for the Environment, the document hopes to provide a means to change planning rules, and free up overly restrictive legislation. Minister for Urban Development Phil Twyford said in the release, "our cities are failing", and "poor quality planning is stopping our cities from growing". The document proposes a National Policy Statement on Urban Development that would direct councils to free up planning rules while focusing on high quality streets, neighbourhoods and communities. Lillian Hanly spoke with Twyford following the announcement to find out more about the changes.
