Community housing partnership in South Auckland gets more Kiwis into new homes
A new Auckland housing development is an example of how private interests can work with public good to help get New Zealanders from all walks of life into warm, safe, secure homes.
Wattle Park, a greenfield development of 112 brand new homes on Mahia Rd in Manurewa, was officially blessed at dawn on 4th September 2020. Wattle Park is a mixed-tenure residential subdivision, consisting of 53 houses owned and or leased by community housing providers (CHPs) Accessible Properties, Penina Health Trust, and Emerge Aotearoa, alongside private properties, and houses built for the Government’s KiwiBuild programme.
