Funding support for Taupō housing
The Government will support a significant housing and community development in Taupō to ensure work can continue during the downturn created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Infrastructure Minister Shane Jones says.
Penny Homes, a locally owned company, has already begun initial works on the Eastern Urban Lands development in Taupō, a mix of residential, retirement, commercial and community facilities.
The development will include affordable and retirement housing, medical and childcare facilities and retail outlets. Work to be undertaken also includes roading, landscaping and walkways that will connect to Taupō’s future urban growth corridor.
