Housing Minister Nick Smith and Auckland mayor Len Brown failed to reach an agreement on Auckland.
A meeting late yesterday, scheduled for two hours, broke up after one.
Mr Smith told the media that over the next six to nine weeks the government and the council will set up a working party on Auckland housing supply.
It would be "energetic" and meet every two weeks, he said.
The council is keen for its 30-year Unitary Plan to come into effect in September. The government wants what it describes as a standard three- or four-year review period.
The two bodies are also at odds over where around 90,000 extra homes should go. The council favours urban intensification and building apartment blocks in suburbs. The government has more emphasis on building outwards.
