More new homes possible for Northland through Whangārei infrastructure investment
Key transport upgrades in Whangārei will be supported by $10.3 million from the Government’s Infrastructure Acceleration Fund (IAF) – unlocking more land for new homes, Prime Minister Chris Hipkins and Housing Minister Megan Woods announced today.
This investment in critical infrastructure is expected to open up approximately 160 hectares of greenfield land for residential development, to support increased housing supply and future growth in the city.
Administered by Kāinga Ora, the IAF is a fund of approximately $1 billion to support new or upgraded bulk infrastructure – such as roading, three waters and flood management – to enable new homes to be built in regions throughout the country. Councils, iwi and developers were invited to apply.
