Property Council Retail Committee

Championing the retail property sector

Property Council’s Retail Committee represents the owners of over 100 retail properties and shopping centres, with 5,000 tenants, a combined annual turnover of 10 billion and a collective market value of 12 billion. 

The Committee provides a unified voice for our members, banding together to advocate on legislative and regulatory challenges, to provide a strong voice for the industry, and to ensure retail is recognised as a significant contributor to the New Zealand economy.

Our membership is broad and encompasses many of New Zealand’s leading retail property owners and managers, including Scentre Group, Kiwi Property, Precinct Properties, Oyster Property Group, Dexus and Colliers.

The Committee is facilitated by Property Council New Zealand. 

"Our mission is to promote a strong and resilient retail property and shopping centre industry that supports sustained economic growth through stronger more connected communities."
