Developers’ decision-making: a case study of development in Special Housing Areas

Author Published Date Read Publication

This paper delves into the decision-making processes of developers involved with Special Housing Areas (SHAs) in the Western Bay of Plenty sub-region between 2014-2017.

SHAs, introduced through the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (HASHAA), aimed to enhance housing affordability by boosting land and housing supply. Despite the HASHAA ending in 2019, the study seeks to understand developers’ roles, particularly given the limited research on their perspective in the housing production process. The research places emphasis on the various factors, such as regulatory and financial frameworks, that influence developer decisions. This is the third in a series exploring SHAs in the Western Bay of Plenty, a rapidly growing area in New Zealand grappling with housing affordability issues. The prior studies analysed SHA legislation and public consultation regarding these areas.
