Review of the Retirement Villages Act 2003

Closed 20 Nov 2023

Opened 8 Aug 2023


Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga – Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has been consulting on a review of the Retirement Villages Act 2003, and its associated regulations and codes.

On 2 August 2023 we published a discussion paper, Review of the Retirement Villages Act 2003: options for change. The discussion paper sets out proposals relating to the three main stages of retirement village living: moving in, living in, and moving out. It also seeks feedback on other topics, such as the definition of retirement village, insurance, the operation of the Retirement Villages Register, and the Code of Practice.

We wanted to hear from retirement village residents, their families, prospective residents, operators, sector bodies, legal advisors, and anyone else who has an interest in retirement villages.

Submissions are now closed.
