The office was also responsible for enabling the delivery of the Auckland Housing Accord as well as investigations on a city wide forward land and infrastructure programme together with the development of non-regulatory tools that impact on housing supply and affordability such as the first Auckland Housing Bond guarantee. This is consistent with actions to implement the Auckland Plan (the first spatial plan).
