Homestar 6 rated public homes ready for whānau in South Auckland
These homes, all built to Homestar Standard 6, will accommodate around 50 locals who are in urgent need of safe, dry housing.
Manurewa sits in Counties Manukau, a fast-growing region with a population of more than 500,000 – or 11% of the population of Aotearoa New Zealand. Currently there are 741 people in Manurewa on the Ministry of Social Development housing register, that is, people not in public housing but who have been assessed as needing to be housed.
Angela Pearce, Regional Director Counties Manukau says, "The opening of the public housing on Dr Pickering Avenue and Friedlander Road signifies new beginnings for 19 individuals or whānau who now have a place to call home.”
