Nelson Housing Accord

The Nelson Housing Accord was signed in June 2017 and superseded the original Housing Accord entered into in June 2015.

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 Nelson Housing Accord was intended to increase land supply for housing, and therefore improve affordability of housing in Nelson.
