Housing supply and special housing areas

What are special housing areas (SHA)?

To help combat Auckland's housing crisis, SHAs were established across the city where fast-track development of housing, including affordable housing, could take place.

Most SHAs had to have a percentage allocated to affordable housing for any consented development over 14 dwellings.

Some SHA developments voluntarily provided more than the criteria required
