Consultation has concluded.

Feedback on the Social Impact Assessment has now closed.

Housing is one of the biggest challenges faced in the Queenstown Lakes District, and it lies at the heart of building secure, connected, and caring communities, creating jobs and a diverse economy.

To support low-to-moderate income earners and help attract and retain skilled works in the district, Council proposed a plan change to include inclusionary housing rules in the Proposed District Plan (PDP). These rules would require most new residential subdivisions and developments to pay a contribution to a registered Community Housing Trust, providing them with an ongoing funding stream to provide access to affordable housing that would be retained as a community asset.

We've now commissioned Beca to undertake a Social Impact Assessment of the Proposed Inclusionary Housing Plan Change.


What is a Social Impact Assessment?

Social Impact Assessment is the common framework used in Aotearoa New Zealand and internationally to analyse, monitor and manage the potential social consequences of changes to policy and/or developments.


How do I get involved?

Feedback closed on Friday 13 October 2023.


How will my feedback be used?

The feedback provided will be used in a report called the Social Impact Assessment report. The final report will be publicly available and will be relevant to Council’s Inclusionary Housing Plan Change.
