New Zealand Planning Institute® Comments On Demographia’s International Housing Availability Survey
The New Zealand Planning Institute® strongly supports Demographia’s call for planners, local councils and developers to collaborate more proactively and effectively on the provision of an adequate supply of affordable new residential housing. In fact, some excellent progress is already being made: in the greater Christchurch area, for example, local councils have come together under the Urban Development Strategy banner to agree on a common set of objectives governing future land use zoning.
Importantly, this and other such partnerships around New Zealand will help ensure that affordable housing takes its rightful place at the heart of community planning decision-making, alongside other key elements such as environmental sustainability.
