Together, shaping cities where communities thrive
Property Council is the leading advocate for New Zealand’s most significant industry – property.
Property Council New Zealand acts as a collective industry voice, giving our members a seat at the table with politicians, to ensure they make informed decisions that benefit our industry and enable a strong economy.
Our strategic aim is to influence Government and decision makers to support decisions that foster a thriving property industry. We aspire to be, and be seen as, an industry leader, reinforcing our role as the voice of the property sector. We want to promote our members’ interests with politicians, improving relationships and communications with local and central government, and increasing politicians’ awareness of the property sector’s contribution to the New Zealand economy.
Property Council’s national advocacy priorities are set on an annual basis by the National Board and our Regional Executive Committees in consultation with members.

Similarly, when we front issues in the media, they want to know real-life examples of the impact on people and the lives of New Zealanders, not just on property or the industry.
In addition to our overarching national priorities, each regional Executive Committee has also identified a singular priority for the year ahead:
