Stephen Barclay has resigned from his role as head of KiwiBuild at the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, with immediate effect.

It follows a period of uncertainty – it was reported in December that he had left his position at the start of November. He started in the role on May 28.

Housing Minister Phil Twyford blamed his absence on an employment dispute. He was paid his normal salary during this period as the decision to be off work was not his, a spokesperson said.

KiwiBuild is the Government’s plan to build 100,000 houses over 10 years.
