Waiheke Community Housing Trust Housing Forum

The forum will address Waiheke’s housing crisis and encourage locals to submit ideas and solutions to the Draft Area Plan. This is a 30 year vision to help shape the future of Waiheke and will inform a process to bring the islands fully within the scope of the Auckland Unitary Plan which provides the overall policy framework and rule book for development in Auckland.

The panel will start the session covering issues such as affordable housing, intensification, tiny houses, co-housing, senior housing, minor dwellings and balancing the need for housing with protection of the environment.
