Let’s Get It Right
Build Affordable Housing. Urban Councils, located on only 0.5% of New Zealand’s land, have dictated, degraded, and devalued the rural owners 99.5% productive land (the perfect community housing solution) to the extent that housing now costs three times more than what the average wage earner can afford.
Don’t Let Your House Kill You? The World Health Organisation certifies that 68% of human diseases are related to indoor air pollution. NZ has the second-highest cancer and asthma death rates in the OECD. New Zealand must stop building houses that promote pathogens, radon, VOCs, and food for toxic mould.
Grow Safe-Food. Fruit, crops, vegetables & herbs without polluting NPK fertilisers and toxic herbicides and pesticides—farm beef, mutton, venison, dairy, pork, poultry without hormones & antibiotics. Enhance the soil with ‘BioFil’ natural bacterial inoculants. Increase plant production with ‘N2N’ growth enhancers & protectors.
Build Self-Contained. Limit sterile urban polluting development earthworks with off-site water reticulation, sewerage disposal and non-renewable energy. Instead, develop self-contained community infrastructure with on-site water harvesting, sewerage disposal, and renewable energy solar, wind, & biomass.
It’s A Team Effort
Human Rights Crisis. Human Rights Commission statement. Councils dictate to the rural owners of their vast land that they cannot build houses to solve the housing crisis. It’s ironic but sad. The elected councillors have failed miserably to create healthy, affordable homes, blighting tens of thousands of families lives.
Protect The Environment. Restrict any unnecessary further greenfield urban development with unsustainable infrastructure. Concentrate on environmentally friendly self-contained communities that can affordably house throughout New Zealand tens of thousands living with off-road EV access in minutes of a supermarket.
Simplify Compliance. The RMA and Building Consent processes have become bloated with the councils and their counterproductive consultant industry. Stop the billions of dollars of waste in crippling fees, time delays, development interest, loss of income, additional GST and the ongoing homeowner’s mortgage interest.
Develop Templates. To fast track RMA and Building Consent, templates are urgently required. With duplication, only one RMA template for community infrastructure and one building consent for each house design is necessary, supported by licenced practitioners’ appropriate inspections and self-certification.
Protect Our Environment
Enjoy The Savings. Rural landowners can develop self-contained, off-the-grid 2000m2 self-contained 99-year ‘Licence To Occupy’ sections for less than NZD50,000 with 600m2 set aside for individual house location and private use and 1,400m2 cross leased for the development of the community infrastructure.
Self-Contained. The NZD50,000 budget covers compliance, gated access, road, on-site potable water and stormwater harvesting, water-saving appliances, greywater recycling, irrigation, sewerage composting, waste recycling and renewable energy solar, wind and biomass generation and storage.
Community Living. An optional NZD40,000 will fund a community fishing boat, garages with workshops and storage, hothouses, garden and orchards, pool, tennis/basketball court, lawn bowls, pre-school and children’s playground, community healthcare, recreation and a hot seat business and conference centre.
Share The Cost. A $400,000, 140m2 house and 600m2 99 year Licence To Occupy land package including joint ownership of the 1400m2 infrastructure requires a $20,000 deposit subject to landowner & bank approval. Adult occupants need sustainable average incomes from business, salaries or WINZ.
Reduce Stress. Visit the poorer suburbs housing and understand why one in five New Zealanders will experience a diagnosable mental health issue in any given year. A further 50% of New Zealanders will experience ‘mental disease, headaches, depression or addiction challenges’ at some point in their lives.
Better Health. Most people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Design and build affordable, safer, healthier housing—passive design houses with nature, away from fire, flood, sea rise and land movement hazards. Build above ground with sustainable materials with direct fresh air filtered ventilation.
A Third Of The Price. Build new 140m2 houses on a licence to occupy land at one-third of Auckland’s average house price. Minimalise expensive trades, save with efficient design, use sustainable materials without built-in obsolescence, save time and labour with the on-site assembly of factory-built hybrid components.
Generate Wealth. An average salary is required to qualify for a home loan plus weekly two $150 mortgage contributions from the tenants in the studios. As the family grows, the tenants leave, and the children move in. Later, when the children grow up and go, the two studios are rented to supplement superannuation.
Secure Our Future
Eliminate Poverty. New Zealand’s 2.2 million full-time jobs provide an average after-tax income of just $47,000. With average house prices of $1,000,000, the elected government representatives have failed in their promise to reduce poverty as current bank finance qualifies for land & house packages of just $400,000.
Provide Universal Health. Design and build quality, healthy, passive, well-insulated houses built off the ground with fresh air ventilation to avoid the build-ups of sick building syndrome asthma, and cancer-causing articulates. Of the almost two million homes, half are obsolescent, full of mould and need replacing.
Protect The Environment. Enrol in the Our Future, Authentic Research College. Live on-site while upskilling in developing environmentally affordable, safer, healthier infrastructure and community housing utilising Future House hybrid factory-built component systems. Build The Affordable Dream.
People Before Profit. Now is the time for our elected representatives to promote and create for our future generations sustainability before ideology. Promote the long term sustainability of human wellbeing through ecological, economic, political and social dimensions and beyond sustainability to abundance.
