Dwelling Type is an important determinant of Ahipara's residential role and function. A greater concentration of higher density dwellings is likely to attract more young adults and smaller households, often renting. Larger, detached or separate dwellings are more likely to attract families and prospective families. The residential built form often reflects market opportunities or planning policy, such as building denser forms of housing around public transport nodes or employment centres.

Dwelling Type statistics should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Household Types, Housing Tenure and Age Structure for a more complete picture of the housing market in Ahipara.

Derived from two Census questions:

'Mark the space that best describes this dwelling:

  • House or townhouse (NOT joined to any other)
  • House, townhouse, unit or apartment joined to one or more other houses, townhouses, units or apartments
  • Moveable dwelling, for example, caravan, boat, tent etc
  • Other'

And 'Is this building as a whole one storey, two or three storeys, four or more storeys, or none of these?'
