Some good news and some bad news this morning about the rise and rise of busybodying. Lincoln University's Environment Society and Design Division head, Stephanie Rixecker says there is a growing demand for "environmental planners" -- that's the bad news -- but admits there is a lack of students keen to become such busybodies. Ms Rixecker blames "bad publicity and issues surrounding the Resource Management Act" for this lack of enthusiasm.
Excellent. While the current legal environment still demands more planning busybodies, it looks like the culture is changing, and careers like these are being looked at with increasing revulsion. Excellent.
