Wellington Housing Accord

The Wellington City Housing Accord was signed in June 2014.

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 Wellington Housing Accord was intended to increase the immediate and longer-term supply of land, and therefore improve the affordability of housing in Wellington.
