Reduce the cost of land

Reduce unnecessary overregulation.

  • Reduce the cost of land by making more building blocks available.
  • Support the establishment of a revolving infrastructure fund to reduce the initial cost of land to the home owner.

A major obstacle to development is the up-front infrastructure cost.

The cost of infrastructure will be paid for initially by the fund. Over a period of years the home owner repays the fund through their rates and other user charges.

Deferring this up-front cost will have the added benefit of spreading the cost of infrastructure over subsequent owners and not be such a hefty cost burden to the initial purchaser.
