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 8 areas in Wellington to be special housing areas for the purposes of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act). 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. Those criteria, which are additional to the requirement under the Act that the development will be predominantly 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.

The overall effect of the order is that if a proposed development in a special housing area will be predominantly 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 Wellington City Council is a party to a housing accord under the Act, an applicant for a resource consent can request a variation to the Wellington City District Plan in certain circumstances where that is associated with the resource consent application.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 20 November 2014.

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