The implications for the Government’s National Policy Statement on Urban Development (NPS-UD) are fast coming to a town near you. Tier-1 councils (Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch) have to:
- change plans to enable building heights of at least six storeys in areas of high demand or areas that are a walkable distance from existing or planned public transport;
- change plans to abolish car parking requirements for developers; and
- produce a ‘Future Development Strategy’ which will set out a long-term vision for accommodating urban growth.
Auckland Council and the Property Council’s Auckland Executive Committee members have an early start and are workshopping some ideas for how we may partner now to ensure delivery of better outcomes for all.
