The housing issue that haunted the Government in 2016 was people crowded in cars, garages and motels.
But the Government refuses to say the problem is a "crisis" as homelessness soared this year and Auckland house prices hit an average of $1 million.
Te Puea and Mangere Marae in South Auckland helped hundreds of families find somewhere to live.
The Government did make a number of major policy changes in an attempt to cool the market down.
The rules for Home Start loosened and the Reserve Bank introduced loan-to-value ratios (LVRs).
But taxpayers started footing the bill for people to live temporarily in motels with the Government insisting housing supply is the problem and the solution.
