A Message from our Chief Executive
Ka taraia tahi ngā taone nui kia tupu hapori ora.
Together, shaping cities where communities thrive.
Property Council members shape New Zealand’s cities, one property at a time. They are the dreamers, the makers and the doers who bring to life spaces for Kiwis to live, work, shop and play.
Property is New Zealand’s number one industry, accounting for 13% of our total GDP. As an industry, we are committed to getting policy settings right so we can get on with building our nation.
This year saw unprecedented times, with a global pandemic that resulted in the nation going into ‘lockdown’ and temporarily pushing pause on our construction and building sectors. Moving forward, New Zealanders need confidence in our economy in order to prepare for future growth. New Zealand needs investment in robust infrastructure and sustainable and resilient cities that can weather whatever the future holds. This election year, it is critical we shift the conversation from ‘problems’ to ‘solutions’, focusing on the outcomes we want to achieve, and how to get there.
The Property Council Election Platform has been crafted in partnership with members, proposing a range of policy initiatives that aim to shape thriving cities and communities. These include reforming the planning system, increasing housing supply, encouraging smarter investment and improving the sustainability and resilience of our building stock.
This platform aims to spark conversation, raise questions and engage policy makers to consider alternative solutions to the hurdles our country is facing. We look forward to working with policy makers to create thriving cities, communities and opportunities for all New Zealanders.
Ngā mihi nui.
