Large intensive Kāinga Ora housing proposal for Ohakune

A proposal by Kāinga Ora and the Ruapehu District Council to create a large intensive housing subdivision in Ohakune has some locals raising questions about “urban sprawl” and asking why existing available housing isn’t being used instead.

Kāinga Ora and the Ruapehu District Council have jointly applied to build a large housing development near the town’s ‘Ohakune Carrot Adventure Park’ to provide social, and affordable housing.

The application covers Stage 1, or 46 residential lots, of what will be a three-stage development comprising up to 130 residential lots.

Simplicity completes development with 48 inflation-pegged rentals

Simplicity Living has completed its second build-to-rent development, creating 48 new homes where tenants will have the option of choosing to have their rental increases pegged to inflation.

Simplicity Living, which is linked to KiwiSaver provider Simplicity, is attempting to build 10,000 homes via an entirely integrated system where it runs the build, management, and filling of rooms.

The Onehunga development, named Oranga, is the second development to be completed, following a 69-home development in the Auckland suburb of Point England.
