December 2017 Urban Development Capacity Report

This page contains the inaugural Nelson-Tasman monitoring report for the two quarters ended December 2017.


This is the third quarterly monitoring report which Nelson and Tasman officers are preparing jointly to report to both Nelson City and Tasman District Councils and covers the period July-December 2017. The indicators that are monitored in this report are population growth, affordability of housing (including building costs and social housing need), house prices and rents, new sections created, building consents for both housing and business, and resource consents for housing and business.

The report found there is an overall undersupply of housing for the combined Nelson – Tasman main urban area, and that both Tasman and Nelson are experiencing increased house prices and rents and poor housing affordability.
