Hamilton Housing Accord

The Hamilton Housing Accord was signed in December 2016.

About the Accord

The Housing Accord and Special Housing Areas legislation enabled the streamlining of new housing developments, and allowed special housing areas to be designated under accords between the Government and Council.

The Hamilton Housing Accord set targets and priority actions to increase the immediate and longer-term supply of land, and therefore improve housing affordability in Hamilton.

It aimed to maintain a well-functioning, private sector-led housing market in Hamilton.
