​Healthy Homes bill passes

Every New Zealander deserves a warm, healthy home to live in, and the Health Homes Guarantee Act will help ensure that, said Minister of Housing and Urban Development Phil Twyford on 30 November.

The passing of the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act was passed by Government on 30 November and covers new standards for heating, insulation, ventilation, draught stopping, drainage and moisture.

The bill can be found here.

The Government will run a consultation process over the next 18 months “to ensure that tenants, landlords, public health and building science experts and industry representatives have an opportunity to get involved in creating robust minimum standards” Mr Twyford says.
