Housing and urban development in Aotearoa

Help us shape thriving communities for the future.

Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga – Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is leading the development of the Government Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development (GPS-HUD), which will communicate the long-term vision for our housing and urban development system, and how Government will work with others to make it happen.

The GPS-HUD is intended to provide a shared vision and direction across housing and urban development, to guide and inform the actions of all those who contribute.

It will set out how Government and other parts of the housing and urban development system will work together to realise this vision.

The GPS-HUD will shape future:

  • government policy
  • investment
  • programmes of work.

The first GPS-HUD will be published by 1 October 2021 and reviewed at least every three years.
