Data to understand supply & demand for housing

Jul 19, 2017 | News

The online dashboard will allow councils to access interactive charts, maps, data on housing:

• sales volume/total stock

• consents/population

• prices, values, rents

• housing affordability

Mr Townsend from the NZ Property Council says, “Giving councils assistance and access to this data is crucial to ensuring growth pays for growth and that a city doesn’t suddenly find itself without good public transport and affordable housing. These are the important building blocks that make up a vibrant, thriving city.

“This is about being proactive towards growth, understanding the supply and demand pressures, and planning accordingly,” says Mr Townsend.
