A co-created report on developing community-focused housing for Aotearoa, with Panuku as a local case study.
The objective was to find a community-focused housing option that met the outcomes of perpetual affordability, housing choices, scalability and replicability, belonging and participation, demonstration of innovation and sustainability.
Six outcomes were considered in Panuku’s Indicative Business Case. Five options considered are those that meet all the objectives agreed with Panuku. These options aim to serve low- to moderate-income earners who are generally essential workers. Options included are:
1A. Tower development(10-storey) with unit title ownership and land included in purchase price.
1B. Tower development (10-storey) with cooperative ownership, and land in a Community Land Trust.
2A. Three-storey development with unit title ownership and land included in the purchase price.
2B. Three-storey development with unit title ownership, with the land in a Community Land Trust.
2C. Three-storey development with cooperative ownership, with the land in a Community Land Trust.
The report demonstrates that Community-focused housing (CFH) should become a core component of strategies for neighbourhood regeneration to deliver quality and affordable housing.
The commercial structure and finance security are outlined. They consider and elaborate the types of policies, private investment, public financing, and the nature of the Council/Crown partnership.
