Together, shaping cities where communities thrive
Property Council is the leading advocate for New Zealand’s largest industry – property.
Each year, we canvas our members to craft our annual advocacy priorities. These priorities form the foundation of all the work we do, both nationally and in the regions.
In 2022/23 these priorities are grouped under five key workstreams:
- Enable thriving cities and infrastructure
- Reform the planning system
- Deliver housing that enhances communities
- Adopt fairer regulation and tax settings
- Improve sustainability and resilience
Property Council's work on advocating for the reinstatement of depreciation on commercial buildings added over $2 billion dollars to the balance sheet of Kiwi property owners. The power of a collective voice is undeniable.

PCNZ makes sure that we've got the right environment in which developers, property owners and consultants can create communities and build cities. I love being part of this organisation.

Nothing Property Council advocates for is in a vacuum or in the abstract. Everything is about the members, it's about property, it's about space. The credibility of that voice comes from the breadth of its membership and its national reach.
Partner, Greenwood Roche
One of the things I love about Property Council is that it's not just a single group within the industry, it's a really good mix. This balance ensures you get a range of viewpoints, expertise and opinion.
