  • 10000 net increase of public homes

    Labour has added 10000 public homes since coming into office, says Hon Dr Megan Woods. Congratulations!

    Of course, the same person said Kiwibuild would produce 100,000 by 2028 or 10,000 a year. To date, the number is around 1300, with 1200 under development.

    However, there have been a lot of building consents.....

    Residential building consents have been at record levels for much of the last year, with more than 50,000 new dwellings consented in the year to June.
    Will the building go ahead and who's going to buy them?

    If anyone listened to Mr Orr's speech yesterday - no one will be buying anything other than necessities for the foreseeable future! Opinion piece on RNZ

    cheers,

    Donna







    OPINION: Christchurch has the second highest annual rent increase of 6.3 per cent.

      ^^ some moteliers have done very well - $16m revenue from EH in one year for one Manukau motel.

      Didn’t know but National started the use the of privately owned motels for EH back in 2016.

      cheers

        What's a "public home" and where are they?

          A lot of homes are 2 bedroom units that have replaced standalone larger houses on sections so I would be interested to see how many larger family homes have been built

            What a disaster.
            Ballooning welfare.
            Not good for anyone.

                Or how's about make them work if they are capable of working
                and cut their welfare if they are capable but unwilling to work?

                The problem with the word "welfare" in any such discussions is the lack of qualification.

                Do people realise that gummint welfare is not very discerning?

                Someone could have a real need: a broken arm and leg in an accident that led to a long-term, real disability.

                Or another one could be a 2nd or 3rd generation state house couch potato, professional welfarist, quite capable of working.

                Yet another might be a gang member, riding a harley, doing well out of a drugs racket, be technically unemployed, so collecting welfare of some sort.

                So many possible extremes.

                A "hand up" versus a "hand out" comes to mind.

                Meanwhile, those who actually and productively work and pay tax to pay the bludgers, have shoulders which are burdened even further.

                Seems that so-called "beneficiary bashing" is not O.K., but "taxpayer bashing" (be it a tenant or a LL) is quite acceptable.

                It's a topsy-turvy world.

                  100 public homes to on a 4 hectares block down the road from us on Raumati Road. Around the corner from family. They got a notice in their letterbox saying expect to see workers on the land in the coming weeks.

                  Neighbours not happy and talking of selling - negative experiences with KO aka dept of social services housing in the news has locals concerned Raumati’s quaint village life will be a thing of the past over run with delinquents, crime, drugs etc.

                  Cheers

                    Is this euphemistic "public houses" thing, the newspeak for state houses?

                      I just read the press release on that development. The land sold for $10M.

                      What I don't understand is that they are speaking of just 100 homes on 4.6 hectares of land. Has KCDC decided against high density housing or perhaps not taken a decision on it yet? For that size of land KO should be able to build far more public houses?

                      Also, do you think the development will affect private landlords in any way?

                        ^^ yeah, I see there is a 160 two-story townhouse development on Kapiti Road on 1.9 ha - but it's flat. The one in Raumati is dunes, and the troughs are pooling areas.

                        Very early days of this development, but locals are unhappy about what it might become.

                        cheers,
