Measures to improve Auckland’s supply of affordable housing have been described as a “dismal failure”.
Auckland Council’s Planning Committee on Tuesday received an update on the provision of affordable housing in the city’s special housing areas.
A report to the committee revealed that fewer than 100 “affordable” houses destined for the free market were built under the Auckland Housing Accord, which ran for three-and-a-half years from 2013, in conjunction with central government.
It had a target of 39,000 new sites and dwellings to be consented across Auckland.
