Debate Point: Views on Labour’s Kiwi Build

Yeah or Nah?

 

We have all heard it by now and it was generating discussion over on Facebook after I posted my initial thoughts:

Okay so the Property will be $360,000 with KiwiBuild in Auckland. Ummm where they going to find Land for under $200k to do that?

The KiwiBuild Policy

 

From what I have seen these are the three candidate sites for Kiwi Build in Auckland to keep the prices deemed “affordable:”

  1. Housing New Zealand Land
  2. Land owned by Auckland Council Property Development (if it were to take an interest)
  3. The Future Urban Zones in the North, North West, and Southern areas of Auckland (that are not already earmarked for other uses like heavy industry)
Southern Rural Urban Boundary with Future urban zones in yellow
Southern Rural Urban Boundary with Future urban zones in yellow

 

So thoughts?
