Event description

Description

Providing quality, liveable, affordable, sustainable communities

Medium density housing is rapidly gaining momentum throughout NZ as a way to deliver more affordable dwellings. When done well, medium density can provide quality, affordable and sustainable housing and liveable communities. Research is identifying what good practice medium density looks like, and new community housing developments are trialling medium density in real life.

This Housing Matters event combines presentations with panel and discussion sessions, to explore the following themes:

  • NZ sectoral issues and challenges
  • Key aspects of successful medium density housing – tools to help
  • Tenure / social mix / tenancy management
  • Disruption and innovation
  • What sort of density – how many storeys and what should it look like?
  • Growing sector capability and examining better practice

Join with other community housing providers, developers, investors, designers, building professionals, planners and policy makers to discuss the issues.

Afternoon tea is provided and the event will be followed by an informal drinks and networking session between 5.00 - 6.30pm. Doors open at 1.30pm - session starts at approx. 1.45pm.
