dc.description.abstractThis thesis draws on concepts of post-politics in an analysis of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013. A short-term means for improving housing affordability by facilitating an increase in land and housing supply, the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 had implications for the planning and development of select cities and districts in New Zealand. Introduced by a National-led Government, the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 was enacted in sympathy with existing neo-liberal political and planning norms. The application of a post-political lens facilitates identification of the democratic limitations of the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013. Analysis of submissions to the select committee addressing the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 and debates in the House of Representatives provides evidence of both limitations of the debates that shaped the enactment of the legislation and challenges to the content of the legislation. The ways in which debates were narrowed align with post-political themes of the acceptance of the neoliberal consensus, the erosion of democracy, the status of knowledge, scope of possible outcomes, and empty signifiers. The consensus that characterises post-political conditions is open to challenge, with scholars reporting on the potential of agonistic pluralism to facilitate democratic participatory planning.en_US
