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 (Nelson) Order 2017 to declare 4 additional areas in the district of Nelson City Council to be special housing areas for the purposes of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act).

The land comprising the 4 special housing areas is described in Part 1 of each of the new schedules inserted by clause 5 (Schedules 1A, 7AAA, 7AAB, and 8AA).

This order also specifies the criteria that a development in the relevant special housing areas 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, are set out in Part 2 of each of the new schedules and 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.

In addition, this order prescribes affordability criteria for the new special housing area at Haven Road. Schedule 1AA provides that 40% of the dwellings in that development must be sold for a price not exceeding $595,000 (inclusive of goods and services tax, if any). This figure has been calculated with reference to the median sales price for the Nelson region in February 2019, which was $560,000 according to information supplied by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand.

See also Nelson City Council’s website for more information about special housing areas in the district.

In addition, Part 2 of this order updates URLs contained in the housing accords and special housing areas orders for Hamilton, Tasman, Tauranga, and Wellington, for webpages at which relevant associated maps and drawings can be found. The URLs have been updated following a transfer of the administration of those orders from the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 29 August 2019.

This order is administered by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.
