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 day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, declares 13 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 each 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 that must be built:

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

This order does not prescribe affordability criteria for any of the special housing areas.

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 can (but do not have to) be made under the Act instead of under 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.

This order is the second to create special housing areas in Wellington. The first order to do so was the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas (Wellington) Order 2014.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 2 July 2015.

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