To deliver more dynamic and successful cities that better meet the needs for housing, employment and amenity, the Government is proposing that major urban development projects are able to be built more quickly.
Urban Development Authority — Legislation
The Government is developing legislation that will establish a national urban development authority (UDA). The UDA will be the Government's lead developer delivering KiwiBuild and large-scale, complex urban development projects.
National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity
The National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity aims to ensure local authorities provide enough space for their growing populations to live and work.
Urban Growth Agenda
The Urban Growth Agenda (UGA) is an ambitious programme to remove barriers to the supply of land and infrastructure, and make room for cities to grow up and out.
Housing Infrastructure Fund
The Housing Infrastructure Fund is a $1 billion fund that provides 10 year interest free loans to high-growth councils. Councils can use this funding for developing core infrastructure to support housing development and increase housing supply.
