LDC heads to New Zealand


Last month LDC’s Chief Executive Officer and A/Executive Director – Operations headed to New Zealand for one of the biyearly GLO Conferences.

LDC is a member of a network of Government Land Organisations (GLO) across Australia and New Zealand.
Members of the GLO network include: City Renewal Authority (ACT), Suburban Land Authority (ACT), Landcom (NSW), Economic Development Queensland (QLD), Development Victoria (VIC), Renewal SA (SA), Development WA (WA), Office of the Tasmanian Coordinator-General (TAS), Defence Housing Australia (DHA), Kāinga Ora (NZ).

Kāinga Ora (NZ) were the host of this conference and the theme was ‘Growing housing supply in a complex urban development environment’.

LDC toured 3 of Kāinga Ora’s large-scale developments in Auckland – Northcote, Hobsonville Point and Roskill. It was great to see and learn about the variety of housing project currently ongoing in NZ. They also visited the new Christchurch rebuild and reconstruction and observed the tremendous construction program that has rebuilt the city over the past decade.

GLO Conferences offer a great opportunity to connect with other agency who are doing similar work and may also be faced with the similar challenges and experiences. It also lends to collective discussion to share learnings and future projects.
