Consultation on the draft Social Housing and Rent Setting Policy closed on Sunday 5 July 2020.

Thank you for your interest and to those who entered a submission, completed the survey or spoke to us in person.

Your views and suggestions are valuable to us and will help form the final proposal to Council. After the next round of Oral Submissions, all the feedback we have received will be presented to Councillors for their consideration as they deliberate and decide on the final proposal in August.


We will be leaving the rent calculator on the website for tenants, and you can still ask us a question. We will endeavor to answer any questions as quickly as we can.

    Is the net income before or after any eg Accomodation Supplement included?

    Beekay Asked 5 months ago

    Kia ora,

    Thank you for your question.

    You should include all household income for anyone over the age of 18 from wage/salary/benefits, including any Accommodation Supplement you currently receive. You do not have to include other special purpose payments (i.e. disability allowance, winter energy payment etc.).  

    Please note, If your rent changes, the Accommodation Supplement you receive from MSD may also change.

    Public consultation on the proposed policy will start again in June. You can provide your feedback via online survey at https://www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz/rent-setting 

    Ngā mihi & best regards,

    Dan
