Planning for future growth; providing evidence of planning

Date:  01 June 2017

Media release:

MBIE, working with the Ministry for the Environment (MfE), has provided a set of new tools to help high- and medium-growth councils to better understand their local markets for housing and business space. 

“This should inform better urban planning that adequately enables housing and business development,” says MBIE Manager of Construction and Housing Policy, Di Anorpong.

 “We’ve provided councils with guidance, and a tool to help determine a housing development’s commercial feasibility, using local market information.  This will help planners meet the requirements of the National Policy Statement on Urban Capacity (NPS – UDC), which was first announced by the Government in late 2016.”
