The development began with the removal of 20 existing Housing New Zealand homes that were built in the 1950s and 60s. These homes had served their tenants well but are now past their best. We have replaced them with 43 modern homes, ranging from two to four bedrooms. There remains an additional 16 one bedroom homes to be completed. The new homes are warm, dry, healthy and designed for the way we live now. Higher energy and water efficiency will make them cheaper to run.
