Auckland Housing Accord

The Auckland Housing Accord was signed on 3 October 2013 by Housing Minister Dr Nick Smith and Auckland Mayor Len Brown. The Accord expired on 22 May 2017.

About the Accord

The Accord was a 3 year agreement to urgently increase the supply and affordability of housing in Auckland until:

  • Auckland Council’s Unitary Plan became fully operative in September 2016, and
  • the Government’s Resource Management Act reforms for planning processes took effect.

The Accord set a target of:

  • 9,000 additional residential houses being consented for in the first year,
  • 13,000 in the second year, and
  • 17,000 in the third year.

Monitoring reports
