NZPI Call for Feedback on the Productivity Commission's Inquiry into Using Land for Housing

The Productivity Commission has released an Issues Paper, available here, as part of its inquiry into Using Land for Housing. The Commission will examine the by-laws, processes and practices of local planning and development systems across New Zealand’s faster-growing urban areas. The Commission has also been asked to identify councils that are effective in making enough land available to meet housing demand and processes that could be adopted more widely. The Commission will also examine overseas approaches to identify leading practices that may provide valuable lessons for New Zealand. The Commission’s deadline for submissions is 22 December.

All individual and Branch feedback is welcome by using the survey link emailed to all members on 18 November by 5:00 pm Monday 1 December.
