Right At Home podcast – Episode 4: Inclusionary Housing – an affordable housing planning tool

Oct 4, 2022 | News

The demand for housing has outstripped supply for many years in Aotearoa, New Zealand. While successive governments have attempted to address the housing shortage, it remains a significant challenge.

Overseas and local experience has taught us that opening up land for new supply does not automatically guarantee that affordable homes that meet people’s needs will be built.

In this episode, Vic Crockford is joined by former CEO of Community Housing Aotearoa, Scott Figenshow, and co-founder and managing director of New Ground Capital, Roy Thompson. All three have spent time living and working in Tāhuna/Queenstown. A successful inclusionary housing policy has helped hundreds of people into affordable homes via the Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust.

Topics covered:

– how inclusionary housing works

– the impact of the Resource Management Act (RMA) reforms on inclusionary housing

– the developer’s perspective on affordable housing

– overseas examples of inclusionary housing schemes.

And more.
