As the Central City population increases it is important that housing choice meets the diverse needs of a wide range of households.
As part of the Council’s Central City Residential Programme we’re looking at ways to support alternative residential development projects that bring a diversity of housing typologies, tenures and price points (including social and affordable) to the Central City.
What is alternative housing?
An alternative housing provider delivers housing projects via an alternative approach to the standard market-led, for profit model of housing delivery. Examples include community housing, Papakāinga housing, co-housing and alternative tenure models such as community land trusts, rent to own and shared equity schemes.
