Nelson housing developments

There is a significant housing shortage and urgent need for housing in the Nelson region. There is also a shortage of land that can be developed and planning limitations.

Our early plans suggest we could deliver more than 270 new homes across Nelson in the next few years.

Community engagement

On 16th October our community engagement team held two community drop-in sessions [PDF, 37 KB] in Nelson.

The sessions were an opportunity for the community to find out more about the new developments planned for the area and ask questions like:

  • How sites are identified for new housing.
  • Our design, planning and construction processes.
  • How we place people into homes and manage our housing.
  • How we support customers to live well in their homes and community.

Our interactive map(external link) has more information about the homes we're planning for the Nelson region. Or you can  download our latest brochure, Housing opportunities for Nelson [PDF, 2 MB] – October 2023.
