Rural subdivision of 300 homes proposed for Central Hawke's Bay

A proposal for a subdivision of 300 homes in a rural area of Central Hawke’s Bay has been met with scepticism from locals.

Springhill Farms​ lodged a resource consent application in April for a rural subdivision on the corner of Wakarara and State Highway 50, about 15 minutes from Waipawa.

The proposal was to create 312 rural lots over 16 stages, with lot sizes ranging from 0.4 of a hectare to 1.6 hectares.

Important milestone for Highbury Triangle

About ten Kāinga Ora staff members attended the early morning blessing at Highbury Triangle on 23 July 2021, which was led by Mātua Pita, Whaea Te Ara and Mātua John.

The event was particularly significant because the Avondale development is one of our largest and most ambitious. The site, which is located between Great North Road and Community Lane, will include 236 homes across 6 to 8 levels.

As part of the whakawātea, the mauri (life force) represented by the whenua (land) was removed from below a mature pōhutukawa tree which is being retained as part of the development.

Government housing dashboard updated - June 2021

The June 2021 update to the Housing Dashboard is now available that shows the progress of key parts of the Government’s housing programme.

The purpose of the dashboard is to demonstrate what people are experiencing by tracking how many families have bought their first home, how many households are in public housing, and how many new homes are being built.

The dashboard shows the results being achieved in housing and will be updated and produced monthly. The dashboard tracks aspects of the current housing situation, the government outputs in response, and the results of those.

New home consents continue to break records

A record 44,299 new homes were consented in the year ended June 2021, Stats NZ said today.

“The annual number of new homes consented rose again in the June 2021 year, the fourth consecutive month of rises,” construction statistics manager Michael Heslop said.

There were 41,028 new homes consented in the March 2021 year, 42,848 in the April 2021 year, 43,466 in the May 2021 year, and 44,299 in the June 2021 year.

The earlier high of 40,025 new homes consented in the year ended February 1974 was first exceeded in the March 2021 year.
