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
