Housing Policy Conservative Party

Housing Policy Conservative Party 17 May 2017

Today the Conservative Party has released both its Housing Video and its full Housing Policy.

The main points of the Housing Policy include net zero immigration (excluding student visas) until housing shortfall has eased, implementing a land tax on dormant residential land, and pre-approved / pre-consented housing designs.

“We have a housing crisis in some parts of New Zealand that needs to be addressed urgently. With 30 years experience in the building industry, I believe there are things we can do to solve the housing crisis in New Zealand. Not an instant fix, but it can be done by implementing solutions outlined in our Housing Policy," says Leighton Baker, Leader of the Conservative Party.

The Conservative Party recognises that housing availability, affordability and quality all need to be addressed on multiple fronts. These include supply management, demand management, cost factors, addressing skills shortfalls and building regulation. The Housing Policy entails practical solutions to each one of these areas.

The brief Housing Video can be viewed on the Conservative Party website: http://www.conservativeparty.org.nz/
