Tap into the $400m progressive home ownership scheme, shifting market conditions such as rent-to-buy, shared equity plans and 5% deposits for first-time home buyers to boost supply by building more homes where they are most needed.  Join government, housing providers, developers, investors and the wider housing community this November to foster collaborative development, design and delivery and unlock urban planning, investment and land supply.

Raise your profile at the 3rd Affordable Housing Development Summit New Zealand 

The 3rd Affordable Housing Development Summit is a premier conference that brings together senior leaders from government, community housing providers and property developers to discuss how to better collaborate in order to increase the supply of affordable housing. 

Extensive research with key stakeholders from New Zealand’s affordable housing community tells us that this discussion is relevant now because:
  1. The Ministry of Social Development estimates that 29% of households are in a state of housing need; and the demand for affordable housing far exceeds supply
  2. Labour’s ‘KiwiBuild’ policy will deliver 100,000 affordable houses over ten years for first home buyers. Half of these will be built in Auckland. That is a ten-fold increase in the number of affordable houses being built in Auckland each year, from 500 to 5,000.
The challenge for government, community housing providers and property developers alike is how can design and construction practices be transformed to create sustainable and replicable affordable housing delivery models at scale?
