Housing

Deliver housing
that enhances communities

With housing at its least affordable, we must build more houses, faster.

Housing supply in New Zealand has not met demand. Lack of supply affects housing affordability and access to housing. More focus needs to be spent on delivery of plans and policies.

We want to see increased housing supply within existing or new communities and the Government work towards the creation of a vibrant Build-to-Rent housing sector to help reduce price pressures. Changes within current building legislation could also be made to alleviate risks and concerns with the consenting process.

Topics include:
  • Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities
  • Build-to-Rent
  • Prefab and modular housing
  • Innovation and design
  • Procurement
  • Building legislation reform
  • Consenting

Recommendations

  • Increase housing supply within existing or new communities.
  • Champion the creation of a Build-to-Rent housing sector.
  • Cap local authority liability to 20%, establish minimum insurance requirements, develop a National Register of Products and establish an independent regulator for consent applications.
