Whenuapai town centre development consented for sale


A large social housing development in central Wellington has been delayed and may require Government help to get off the ground.

A failed partnership bid and funding issues have hit the Wellington City Council's plans for phase two of a development to build more affordable housing on a section of its Arlington site.

The site, which spans Arlington St, Hopper St and Hankey St, represents 12 per cent of the council's entire housing portfolio and is the biggest project in the council's Housing Upgrade Programme.

Housing Minister coy on actual numbers of houses to result from the Kiwibuild 'Buying off the Plans' tender

Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford  says the Government's Kiwibuild 'Buying off the Plans' initiative attracted "overwhelming" interest - but he's not giving specifics about exactly how many houses might result under the proposals the Government has received.

He says "almost 100" proposals have been received from developers in response to the tender conducted by the Government, which closed last Friday but appears reluctant to be drawn on how many actual houses that might produce.

Pūriri Park land bought for $1.35 million for state housing development in Whangārei

A block of land now destined for a state housing development in Whangārei was bought for $1.35 million and residents unhappy with the development are asking if they could buy the land back.

Housing New Zealand finalised the purchase of the land on Pūriri Park Rd in Maunu at the beginning of the week.

Disappointment over council's consultation on car park development

Vocal residents on Auckland's North Shore turned out in force to fight a controversial car park redevelopment in their neighbourhood.

Lack of consultation and a loss of public space were the main themes of a public meeting that saw more than 200 Takapuna residents unanimously vote to oppose Auckland Council's March decision to develop the site of Anzac St car park.

"People who are passionate about Takapuna no longer consult because they don't feel like they're being heard ... There's no benefit whatsoever," Devonport-Takapuna Local Board member Michael Sheehy said.
