CHA releases discussion document on Inclusionary Zoning

Community Housing Aotearoa and our subsidiary Community Housing Solutions have worked with numerous councils on housing needs assessments, strategies and task forces. A recurring theme from this work is the desire for additional tools to address unmet housing needs effectively. We know there is interest in understanding Inclusionary Zoning and how it might work in the New Zealand context. This interest was confirmed by the remit passed by Local Government New Zealand at its Annual General Meeting in 2020. We have developed this paper to progress a discussion of Inclusionary Zoning as one of the tools that can support our vision of ‘all New Zealanders well-housed’. This paper builds upon prior work we have undertaken ourselves and with others interested in improving the responsiveness of the housing system. We would like to thank Tanya Perrott for her preparation of this discussion document. To further the discussion we plan to hold meetings, seminars and webinars to engage with all who are interested in finding solutions to the housing challenges we face. However, you do not need to wait for these events to share your thoughts. Please email your ideas, proposals or questions to Chris Glaudel at [email protected] to further this discussion.
