Annual number of new homes consented up 20 percent

The number of new homes consented rose 20 percent in the year ended July 2021, compared with the same period in 2020.

“There were 45,119 new homes consented in the July 2021 year, a 20 percent rise from the previous July year,” Michael Heslop, construction statistics manager said.

The year ended July 2020 included the COVID-19 level 4 lockdown period in late March and April 2020, which disrupted consent issuance across many territorial authorities.

Ngāi Tahu selling off Wigram shopping centre The Landing

The town centre of one of Christchurch’s newest suburbs is being sold off by its owner, Ngāi Tahu Property.

The iwi-owned company is selling The Landing, which is the central shopping and hospitality strip in Wigram in southwest Christchurch. It has restaurants, food outlets, shops and offices.

The Landing has been put up for sale either as the entire complex or in two parts.

Ngāi Tahu Property began building the Wigram Skies subdivision on the former Wigram aerodrome a decade ago, with plans for 1800 homes for 4000 residents and a $40 million town centre.
