It’s safe to require affordable housing in Auckland – backed by legal opinion

Aug 10, 2016 | News


“This opinion confirms what we’ve been asking the Auckland Council to do- to reject the recommendation of the Independent Hearings Panel and put the affordable housing provisions back into the Unitary Plan,” says Scott Figenshow, Community Housing Aotearoa chief executive. He says the community housing sector is pleased to see increased density of housing in the plan but is concerned that homes will still be out of the reach for the half of Aucklanders earning below the median income.
