Deliver housing that enhances communities

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, with a lack of supply affecting housing affordability and access to housing for many New Zealanders. There needs to be a greater focus on delivering housing plans and policies.

We want to see increased housing supply within existing and/or new communities and the Government further champion a vibrant Build-to-Rent housing sector to help reduce rental price pressures. Changes within current building legislation could also be made to alleviate risks and concerns with the legislative building system.

Topics include:
  • Build-to-Rent
  • Prefab and modular housing
  • Innovation and design
  • Procurement
  • Building legislation reform
  • Consenting

Build to Rent Tracker

In March 2024, Property Council launched a dedicated Build to Rent Tracker, where we track the progress of Build to Rent development around the country. Click here to view the latest stats.

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.
