Vision: All New Zealanders well-housed.
Everybody has the right to a home. Being well-housed includes ensuring housing adequacy and in this plan we have adopted the UN housing adequacy definition.
Goal: Provide homes for 50,000 more people by 2020.
Social and affordable housing markets must continue to grow to meet current and growing housing needs and address unaffordability and housing inadequacy in New Zealand’s housing market.
For this to happen new housing needs to be delivered across the housing continuum from emergency housing to home ownership. Our Place lays out the plan to achieve this goal.
Objectives: What we want this plan to achieve:
1. Positive outcomes for communities, families and individuals:
An increase in adequate housing that makes a measurable difference in the lives of communities, families and individuals.
2. Local responses to delivery:
An increase in local partnerships, supported by government, that meet community needs among iwi, the private sector, service providers and community housing organisations, each playing to their natural strengths.
3. Long term certainty of the operating environment:
A long term plan with committed resources and a stable policy framework, built on broad political consensus is necessary to achieve all New Zealanders well-housed.
