Developing the GPS-HUD

Housing and urban development affects everyone, so we have been working with Iwi and Māori, central and local government, agencies from across the housing and urban development system and the public to help develop the final GPS-HUD.

To understand the challenges and opportunities facing the housing and urban development in Aotearoa New Zealand and work toward a shared long-term vision for the future, we:

  • held online workshops with key stakeholders to hear their perspectives and develop an outline of what should be included in the final GPS-HUD, and
  • used these views to develop a discussion document for all New Zealanders to have their say though public consultation.

Public consultation

From 14 June to 30 July 2021, we held a public consultation to give all New Zealanders the chance to have their say on the Government’s direction for housing and urban development in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We released a discussion document outlining the key elements expected to be included in the GPS-HUD and asked people to provide their feedback by completing an online survey, contacting us directly or in small group meetings.

Throughout the six-week consultation period, we received more than 500 submissions from individuals and organisations across Aotearoa New Zealand, which we used to inform the final GPS-HUD.
