The New Zealand housing crisis
An overview of outcomes, underlying causes and policy development
New Zealand has experienced a period of significant and rapid urban growth. This has led to deteriorating housing outcomes, with house prices in Auckland (New Zealand's largest city) among the least affordable in the world. After years of piecemeal changes to land use planning and environmental management legislation, political parties from across the spectrum, industry groups, and environmental organizations, are all calling for fundamental reform. This seminar will provide an overview of New Zealand's housing outcomes, analysis of the underlying causes of New Zealand's housing problems, a snapshot of recent significant land use policy initiatives, and an overview of the government's current Urban Growth Agenda, including work on major land use planning and environmental management reform.
This event is open to NYU faculty, research staff, and graduate students. To RSVP please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
