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 30 August 2019, amends the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas (Queenstown-Lakes) Order 2017 to declare 1 additional area in the Queenstown-Lakes District to be a special housing area for the purposes of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act).

This order also specifies the criterion that a development in the new special housing area must meet to be a qualifying development for the purposes of the Act. That criterion relates to the minimum number of dwellings to be built.

That criterion is additional to the height restrictions in the Act and the requirement under the Act that the development will be predominantly residential.

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

See also Queenstown-Lakes District Council’s website for more information about special housing areas in the district.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.
