The National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity 2016 (NPS-UDC) requires Councils to understand the demand for, and supply of, business land in their districts. Wellington City Council is partnering with its neighbouring Councils (Greater Wellington Regional Council, Hutt City Council, Upper Hutt City Council & Kapiti Coast District Council, otherwise referred to as "the Councils") in order to fulfil that requirement. The Councils seek consulting services to fulfil the requirements of the NPS-UDC to understand business land demand dynamics across their jurisdictions.

The Councils are seeking consultancy services to understand demand drivers and to provide a demand assessment for business land in their districts. The organisati will prepare a report (or reports) to address the requirements of the NPS-UDC. The Ministry for the Environment document “National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity 2016: Guide on Evidence and Monitoring” should be used as a basis for preparing a suitable methodology and to provide greater context on the required deliverables. The scope of services is limited to demand side matters only and no supply side analysis should be undertaken. Additionally, residential demand and supply work is being undertaken separately.

The Councils are looking for providers who have the technical capability, industry knowledge and experience to deliver appropriate research to suitably address the requirements of the NPS-UDC for business land within the timeframes outlined. This is an opportunity to contribute to the development of the first generation of Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessments required under the NPS-UDC. In particular, this is an opportunity to take part in a collaborative response to the NPS-UDC being undertaken in partnership by a number of Councils. The Councils are charged with implementing the NPS-UDC for their Districts/Region. Given the interconnectedness of the region and the extensive movement of people and businesses between the boundaries, the Councils are proactively collaborating in implementing the NPS-UDC. The Councils anticipate that such an approach will result in a comprehensive assessment of business demand across the jurisdictions of the relevant Councils and will result in cost efficiencies.

Following ROI evaluation, we will shortlist 2-4 organisations to RFP. Wellington City Council will form a single contract with the preferred tenderer on behalf of all of the Councils.
