New homes for Auckland families in need in Birkdale
Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford today officially opened 23 new state homes designed for Auckland families in the high-demand area of Birkdale.
“These 18 two-bedroom and five four-bedroom warm, dry homes on Chippendale Crescent have been designed to meet the needs of families in the area,” Phil Twyford. “They are close to a number of schools, the Beach Haven ferry to Auckland CBD, and are 4km from the Glenfield Mall.
“There is a real demand for public housing for families in need in the Birkdale, and Auckland region.
“In the wider Kaipatiki Local Board area, the demand for housing has been on the rise for a number of years. Since December 2017, the number of families or individuals waiting for a state house has nearly doubled to about 150.
