Why didn't National's Special Housing Area's work to lower prices?

National granted certain areas SHA's which like a Club Zone created a housing zone outside the local council district plan.

A:

The effect of the SHA's were to grant a windfall profit to the landowner.  There were never enough areas created to make competition so the developers just charged the full price for the sections. Under our system, House Club has the sole right to grant the zoning - so the landowner has no power and what would have been windfall profits is instead a much cheaper house for the club members.
