A Submission on the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply And Other Matters) Amendment Bill, by PlanTechNZ.

PlanTechNZ has focused its feedback on the bill concerning the aspects in which technology could support the bill’s objectives.

Critically the bill is not supported by a detailed analysis of housing uptake figures under the present system or as proposed in the new planning system proposed in this bill. It is difficult to make decisions on housing interventions when the amount of new housing in the approval pipeline is not available.
