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 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, inserts the names of the districts of Hamilton City Council, Nelson City Council, Selwyn District Council, Tasman District Council, and Waimakariri District Council into Schedule 1 of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (the Act). Regions and districts named in that schedule are those that the Government has identified as having housing supply and affordability issues for the purposes of the Act.

The effect of the order is that, on and after the date on which the order comes into force, the mechanisms in the Act for addressing housing supply and affordability issues may be applied in relation to each of the districts named. These include—

  • power for the territorial authority and the Government to enter into an agreement (a housing accord) to work together to address housing supply and affordability issues in the district:

  • power for the Minister for Building and Housing to recommend that defined geographical areas within the district be established as special housing areas (but only on the territorial authority’s recommendation if a housing accord is in force):

  • in relation to developments in special housing areas that meet certain criteria (qualifying developments), power for developers and infrastructure providers to apply for and obtain resource consents (and, in certain circumstances, related plan changes or variations to proposed plans) under the Act instead of under the Resource Management Act 1991.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 11 December 2014.
