Housing is a significant issue for all New Zealanders. We need to get housing right for the sake of our communities’ social and economic futures.
Unaffordable housing is having a negative impact on local economies, discretionary household expenditure and social well-being. This means addressing matters of supply, how social and community housing needs are met and the importance of healthy homes. Underpinning the issue is the need for appropriate funding and financing.
The Housing 2030 Project is based on three priority areas:
The supply priority includes the four focus areas of infrastructure funding, regulatory frameworks, land/housing supply and availability, and affordable housing.
The social and community housing priority has two focus areas that are social housing and rental housing.
The healthy homes focus area is on local government’s role in the provision of energy efficiency, healthy and warm homes.
