Govt set to work with Nats on apartments


Anne Gibson

The Government plans to overhaul the $50 billion apartment sector by tightening laws but Housing Minister Phil Twyford says this won’t be until next year at the earliest.

Reacting to the joint push for a law reform from National’s Auckland Central MP, Nikki Kaye, and its urban developmen­t spokeswoma­n, Judith Collins, Twyford said yesterday that would come but not immediatel­y.

“Labour supported the previous Government’s work in this area as it offers a pragmatic solution,” he said.

“During my meeting with Nikki Kaye and Judith Collins, I suggested a joint approach and I’m happy to work with them on this on a nonpartisa­n basis.
