Housing Action Plan and Housing Project Office




Auckland Council

Auckland Council set itself up to focus on the “housing crisis” it faces.  Morrison Low has provided assistance over the past six years on a range of areas, including:

  • The development of a comprehensive housing action plan that identified a range of initiatives across the housing spectrum.  Morrison Low assisted in implementing a number of these actions which are seen as best practice including Housing Bonds, Inclusionary Zoning, WOF schemes, Cost of Growth assessment and Place Management design and modelling.
  • Assistance with the establishment of the Housing Project Office, a division with Council that was tasked to focus on housing delivery.  Key outcomes were the provision of a more coordinated approach, working more closely with the development sector, aligning infrastructure requirements, streamlining Councils internal processes to deliver housing in a faster, more efficient manner. 
  • The identification and establishment of Special Housing areas
  • Working with Council’s development CCO, Panuku Development Auckland, to identify potential developments and partnership arrangements
