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 28 June 2019, amends the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas (Queenstown-Lakes) Order 2017 to declare 2 additional areas in the Queenstown-Lakes District to be special housing areas for the purposes of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act).

This order also specifies, for each new special housing area, the criteria that a development in the new special housing area must meet 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, relate to—

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

  • the minimum number of dwellings to be built.

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