Submissions on Urban Development Capacity

The Government is inviting submissions on the proposed National Policy Statement (NPS) on Urban Development Capacity. A consultation document has been prepared by the Ministry for the Environment and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

The proposed new NPS directs councils to provide sufficient development capacity in their resource management plans to meet housing and business demand.

It also includes a range of specific policies to support this. This would facilitate urban development that meets a range of needs for homes and jobs.

Submissions on the proposed NPS close on Friday 15 July 2016.

For more information, including background documents, a regulatory impact statement and discussion paper, please see The link also provides the methods by which submissions may be made.
