Candidate statement

I am standing to be an advocate for more housing.

Wellington's unfolding housing crisis is causing severe and wide reaching harm to its residents.

The shortage of housing is causing or exacerbating homelessness, social inequality and crime. This council has the power to decide if, when and where housing can be built.

To address the housing crisis I will work to legalise as much housing as possible in our walkable and public transport accessible neighbourhoods. I will not sacrifice adequate housing supply and affordability for neighbourhood character. It's true that allowing more houses to be built will not single-handedly solve the housing crisis but the housing crisis cannot be solved without building more housing.

I also acknowledge that we must do our bit to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. I will prioritize reliable bus travel and non-lethal walking and cycling conditions over on-street car parking where necessary.
