on the advice and with the consent of the Executive Council; and

4 Declaration of special housing areas

(1)

The area comprising all the land identified in each schedule of this order is severally declared to be a special housing area for the purposes of the Act.

(2)

If there is any inconsistency between the description of the land comprising a special housing area and the map of that land, the description prevails.

5 Criteria for qualifying developments in special housing areas

(1)

The following criteria apply for qualifying developments in each special housing area declared by clause 4:

(a)

the maximum number of storeys that buildings may have is 6:

(b)

the maximum calculated height that buildings must not exceed is 27 metres:

(c)

the minimum number of dwellings to be built—

(i)

in each special housing area (except the special housing areas identified in subparagraphs (ii) and (iii)) is 4:

(ii)

in Racecourse Parade, Avondale special housing area (see Schedule 12) is 15:

(iii)

in each of the following special housing areas is 50:

  • Bellfield Road, Papakura special housing area (see Schedule 3):

  • Harbourside Drive, Hingaia special housing area (see Schedule 9):

  • Redhills (Fred Taylor Drive)—Stage 1 special housing area (see Schedule 13):

  • West Hoe Heights, Orewa special housing area (see Schedule 17):

(d)

the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings, for qualifying developments relating to 15 or more dwellings only, is—

(i)

10%, according to criteria A; or

(ii)

5%, according to criteria B.

(2)

In subclause (1)(d)(i), a qualifying development relating to 15 or more dwellings meets criteria A for the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings if,—

(a)

in relation to 10% of the proposed dwellings, the price at which a dwelling may be sold does not exceed 75% of the Auckland region median house price for the most recent full month of September (in relation to the relevant date) published by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand Incorporated; and

(b)

where the application is for a subdivision consent, the applicant—

(i)

identifies the lots of the subdivision allocated for the building of dwellings that meet the criterion in paragraph (a); and

(ii)

specifies the mechanism for ensuring that any building built on any of those lots is a dwelling that will meet that criterion or is a building associated with such a dwelling.

(3)

For the purposes of calculating whether a development meets the 10% threshold in subclause (2)(a),—

(a)

a proposed dwelling may be treated as if it were 2 dwellings that meet the requirements for criteria A if the price at which the dwelling may be sold would mean that the monthly mortgage payments for a household receiving the Auckland median household income (as published by Statistics New Zealand for the most recent June quarter before the relevant date) would not exceed 30% of the household’s gross monthly income, based on the assumptions set out in subclause (4)(a)(i) and (ii); and

(b)

if the calculation of the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings results in a fractional dwelling of one-half or more, that fraction is counted as 1 dwelling, and any lesser fraction may be disregarded.

(4)

In subclause (1)(d)(ii), a development relating to 15 or more dwellings meets criteria B for the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings if,—

(a)

in relation to 5% of the proposed dwellings, the price at which a dwelling may be sold would mean that the monthly mortgage payments for a household receiving the Auckland median household income (as published by Statistics New Zealand for the most recent June quarter before the relevant date) would not exceed 30% of the household’s gross monthly income, based on the assumptions that—

(i)

the dwelling is purchased with a 10% deposit; and

(ii)

the balance of the purchase price is financed by a 30-year reducing loan, secured by a single mortgage over the property, at a mortgage interest rate equal to the most recent average 2-year fixed rate (in relation to the relevant date) published by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand as part of the data for its key graph on mortgage rates offered to new customers for residential home loans; and

(b)

where the application is for a subdivision consent, the applicant—

(i)

identifies the lots of the subdivision allocated for the building of dwellings that meet the criterion in paragraph (a); and

(ii)

specifies the mechanism for ensuring that any building built on any of those lots is a dwelling that will meet that criterion or is a building associated with such a dwelling; and

(c)

if the calculation of the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings results in a fractional dwelling of one-half or more, that fraction is counted as 1 dwelling, and any lesser fraction may be disregarded.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, declares 17 areas in Auckland to be special housing areas for the purposes of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act). These areas are additional to the 66 special housing areas previously declared by the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas (Auckland) Order 2013.

The land comprising each special housing area is described and shown on a map in a schedule of the order.

The order also specifies the criteria that a development in any one of the special housing areas must meet in order to be a qualifying development for the purposes of the Act. These criteria, which are additional to the requirement under the Act that the development will be predominately residential, are—

  • the minimum number of dwellings to be built:

  • the maximum number of storeys that buildings in the development may have and the maximum height that they may be:

  • where the development relates to 15 or more dwellings, the percentage of dwellings that must be affordable dwellings:

  • the affordability criteria for those special housing areas in which a percentage of dwellings must be affordable.

The overall effect of the order is that if a proposed development in a special housing area will be predominately residential and meets the criteria specified for qualifying developments, applications for resource consents relating to the development can (but do not have to) be made under the Act instead of the Resource Management Act 1991. Also, because Auckland Council is a party to a housing accord under the Act, an applicant for a resource consent can request a variation to the proposed Auckland combined plan in certain circumstances where this is associated with the resource consent application.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 16 October 2014.

This order is administered by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.
