Special Housing Area Proposals

Closed 1 Dec 2017

Opened 4 Nov 2017


Please note – the closing date for feedback has been extended to Friday 1 December 2017.

You may be aware that Hamilton City Council and the Government signed a Housing Accord at the end of last year as a way to increase housing supply and improve housing affordability in Hamilton.

Creating Special Housing Areas (SHAs) is a key mechanism for the Council to deliver on its commitments under the Housing Accord. SHAs are proposed areas of land – including sites not currently zoned for residential – that can be put forward for housing development by landowners or developers for consideration by the Council.

The first round of applications for SHAs closed on 29 September 2017 and the Council is now seeking public feedback on the proposals received:

  • Te Kowhai Road and Exelby Road, Rotokauri
  • Tawa Street, Melville
  • Eagle Way and Maui Street, Te Rapa
  • Quentin Drive and 35 Gilbass Avenue, Hamilton Lake

Feedback on the proposals is open until Friday 1 December 2017.
