FREE | 2020 DISCUSSION: Capacity for housing: well-located, sustainable and competitive

Date: Thursday 4th June
Time: 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Geoff Cooper from PwC will present some of the economic analysis work they prepared to support the proposed National Policy Statement on Urban Development.

He will discuss some of the fundamental trade-offs we are making through urban planning policy, addressing the question:

How can we make land for housing in our cities more accessible, sustainable and competitive for future generations?

Many New Zealand’s cities have become increasingly expensive against regional peers while wages have lagged behind. For would-be urban residents, life in our biggest and fastest growing cities can mean either a lifetime of debt or long periods spent commuting rather than with family and friends. In this session, Geoff will discuss some of the options we have to change course.

The National Policy Statement on Urban Development (NPS-UD) is proposed to replace the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity 2016. The NPS-UD aims to remove unnecessary restrictions on development, to allow for growth ‘up’ and ‘out’ in locations that have good access to existing services and infrastructure. The NPS-UD is joint project between the Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.
