Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, already accounts for a third of NZ's population and its growth continues apace. In a seismically active country, this is just daft. For instance, see the maps and animations about the recent earthquake off NZ's east coast...

Even if Auckland isn't the center of a future large earthquake, a tsunami from one offshore could still devastate it. Having near to half the country's population in one location makes no sense at all in New Zealand.
