Housing supply data survey – update

Sep 27, 2016 | Research

These responses yielded some exciting results. The 20 community housing organisations who responded provided information on 2,225 homes across New Zealand with an occupancy rate of 98%. We observed great diversity in the types of housing being provided by the sector:

  • 49% of respondents reported providing long term rental
  • 21% provide rent-to-buy schemes for occupants
  • 14% provide residential group housing.
  • 16% is made up of a mixture of ownership schemes, transitional housing, emergency housing, and shared ownerships

The survey also showed the diversity of target groups in these homes: with low income families (28%) and people with mental health needs (16%) clearly targeted. Other targeted (<10% in each area areas included): elderly/kaumatua, homeless, key workers, low income single people, people with disabilities, ex-prisoners, Māori, and youth. 44% had unspecific targeting.

The next survey will be for the period ending September 30th and we know from previous work that the community housing stock in New Zealand exceeds 5000. We’d love to be able to report on all these 5000 homes for this round.

We’ll be sending out the next survey form soon and while this process is voluntary, we urge you to take part now. This survey is an important step towards having a better understood and resourced community housing sector.
