Publication date:  June 2016
Publication reference number:  CR 225

This report presents the findings of research into the sufficient supply of business land in urban areas experiencing the highest population growth in New Zealand. Where issues where identified the research looked at whether the proposed National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity would address those issues.

The research found that although the overall supply of business land is sufficient in areas of rapid economic and population growth there is a shortage of the right land in the right locations.
