Livability and Medium Density Housing

A research project that identifies and addresses how liveability is being achieved by medium density housing developments in New Zealand.

Creating improved housing outcomes: Liveable medium-density housing summary report is a multi-year project aimed at understanding how livability was being achieved by medium density housing and how it could be improved, reviewing local and international strategy, policy and research documents relating to the liveability of MDH, and identify and addressing the knowledge gaps relating to liveability research in New Zealand.

The Wellbeing Budget (2019) was launched during the evolution of this project. This redefined a way for how liveability and well-being aligned with each other and was then considered in the literature review and became integral to the survey and focus group questions, and the legislation and regulation review.

TUA has further tested the methodologies of this project to gather a robust evidence base for how to deliver livable neighbourhoods in New Zealand. This is being applied in projects in Auckland (Tamaki) and Wellington (Porirua).
