Ryman is a publicly-listed retirement village operator in New Zealand that acquires residential land to develop into retirement villages, being long-term accommodation facilities under the Act.
We are satisfied Ryman has demonstrated that residential land acquired under this standing consent is likely to be used in the construction of, or an increase of the number of dwellings in, a long-term accommodation facility, per Schedule 2 of the Act.
This standing consent (for a maximum of 20 transactions by 31 July 2022) will permit Ryman to acquire up to a total of 500 hectares of residential (but not otherwise sensitive) land in New Zealand.
