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
- programmes of work.
For more information about what was proposed and to read our discussion document, visit the GPS-HUD page on the HUD website.
The first GPS-HUD will be published by 1 October 2021 and reviewed at least every three years.

On 14 June 2021 we released a discussion document outlining the key elements that the Government expects to be included in the GPS-HUD and asked all New Zealanders to have their say.
Consultation on the Government Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development closed on 30 July 2021.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback to help shape thriving communities for the future.
