The Government has asked the Productivity Commission to investigate ways to improve the way local authorities regulate to make land available for housing. The issues paper outlines areas on which the Commission is seeking feedback.

The Commission has been asked to examine and compare the rules and processes of local government to identify leading practices in planning and taking decisions about making land available for housing, and providing for necessary infrastructure. It has also been asked to look at models adopted by cities overseas that might provide valuable lessons for New Zealand.
