Government steps in to fund infrastructure for Auckland housing

  • Up to 1,260 additional homes enabled across five Auckland suburbs
  • Mount Roskill, Māngere and Northcote get significant increase in wastewater, stormwater and clean water capacity 
  • Improved water discharge to Tāmaki Estuary, reducing flooding risk
  • Improved road safety and walking and cycling safety across Tāmaki and Oranga

Five Auckland suburbs are getting a major Government housing boost from the Housing Acceleration Fund, enabling up to 1,260 additional homes on top of the 2,500 additional homes that have already been supported by Government funding, the Housing Minister Dr Megan Woods announced today.

“$282 million will be spent on Large Scale Projects (LSPs) in Mt Roskill, Mangere, Tāmaki, Oranga and Northcote, in Auckland’s first big chunk of Housing Acceleration funding,” says Housing Minister Megan Woods.

It provides perspective on why these 4.3 square kilometres of Auckland play a pivotal role in the economic health of New Zealand.
