This thesis investigates the relationship between urban intensification and affordable housing in New Zealand. The Auckland region has a policy of intensification that is reinforced by urban containment with metropolitan limits. Auckland has an affordable housing problem, which has received some attention at a national, regional, and local level. However, the statutory mandate to address affordability at local, regional or national levels is not strong and attempts to address affordable housing often lack necessary resources.
