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 (Hamilton) Order 2018 to declare 2 additional areas in the district of Hamilton City Council 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 special housing area must meet to be a qualifying development for the purposes of the Act. Those criteria 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.

Those criteria are additional to the requirement, under section 14(1)(a) of the Act, that the development will be predominantly residential.

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

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

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.
