Advocacy and Actions

Hold a second Housing 2030 Symposium highlighting trends, technology and advancements in policy and implementation of housing activities in New Zealand.
Continued engagement with existing agencies such as MSD, HUD, Treasury and MBIE to inform local councils of trends and activities initiated by Government and stakeholders.
