For our weekly catch up with the ACT party Rawan spoke to MP Simon Court about some of ACT’s policies to battle the housing crisis.

They started off by discussing their incentive for councils to increase the building of residential housing, looking at why it's important and how it will work. This incentive aims to take a 50% GST from the revenue of new residential buildings and give it back to councils.

Simon then discussed ACTs plans to scrap the Resource Management Act, taking out what they believe to be an excess of consents and regulations and focus more on development. He also talked about the reforms they plan to make to the business ACT and how this links into the housing crisis
