Insights papers and reports
Our Insights papers are occasional papers with topical commentary on the Auckland economy and in-depth analysis, often focusing on land and housing.
How Aucklanders use and value council amenitiesHow do Aucklanders value the services we provide and how does that inform how we provide those services- especially in such financially-constrained times?
Does the Rural Urban Boundary impose a price premium on land inside it?Keeping or removing the boundary is fundamental to Auckland’s future shape, infrastructure needs, transport patterns and community outcomes.
The expensive price of cheap decisionsWe are under pressure to keep rates low - this creates difficulty when decisions made decades, or even a century ago, are still having negative impacts today.
What's so special about character?The premium for properties in special character areas has been falling, and the premium for being upzoned has been increasing.
The Brownfield BounceBrownfield land seems to be making a comeback as a response to Unitary Plan upzoning, with huge growth in brownfield consents.
Location, location, location size and qualityMany things affect property values in more or less obvious ways and there are interesting implications for local and central government policy.
How the Unitary Plan adds value to propertiesDoes upzoning – the council policy allowing more development on the same land – increase the value of properties?
How should we fund our greenfield infrastructureInfrastructure is expensive. Should those who benefit most from this new greenfield infrastructure pay for the bulk of it?
